Introducing Taurus


This is my Taurus the Bull,   I was asked to tat a Bull,  well after looking for a pattern and not been able to find one,  I designed my own.

Well this is him,  the picture was taken before I had pressed him and the cotton left was used to attach him to a card,  which is at the bottom of the post.

Here is he in close up,   I used Lizbeth thread Gold and white no 20,  with two black beads for the eyes,  I used some threads for the tail I tried some long picots but it did not look right so I just attached the threads with a loop,  on a very small picot.

I have not written up the pattern yet although its written in rough and I will be putting the pattern in my esty store when its ready.

The card I used a backing paper that I also used for the tree card I did a couple of weeks ago for the Sunday CD Challenge Trees and Shrubs.  I sewed Taurus on a pale green card although in the picture it looks blue but it was pale green and pale green spot paper,  the edging was green/gold peel offs to finish off the card.

I hope you like him,  I am pleased with him,  it took quite a few hours to design him,  the front legs could have been a little straighter but I think hes got a cheeky face. I hope they like the card,   I did enjoy designing him,  one thing I can say he was all my own work,   if you think there is any part of him that's from another pattern,  all I can say he came from my brain. 
Until we meet again in blog land.
Take Care
