I made this snail for the talented and delightful @Wulf for the two fat quarters swap on the other site. I had so much fun making this guy!
I wanted to make something different, and I just made this up as I went along. I made a simple wire armature for the snail body and covered it with fabric and batting, glass bead eyes. I cut the shell from another FQ, reinforced the widest bit with heavy interfacing, lightly stuffed and hand-stitched into shape. I covered a circle of mat board with fabric and glued into the shell to form a rigid threadcatcher.
Only using two FQs was quite the design constraint! I really enjoyed making him, and he is one of a kind
