The first step in putting the felt mosaic together is to glue the smaller pieces to a series of larger base parts. I’ll be able to do the stitching on each part by hand this way, much more easily.
The eyeballs, eye enclosures, and spikes are sub-mosaics, because I’ll be adding stuffing to raise them a little from the plane of the design. Once I’m done, I’ll employ the same glue and stitch technique to arrange the base parts on the bag.
Did I mention this is going to be a bag?
It will be a messenger bag, padded with fleece, with an interior pocket for a 14″ laptop, a second pocket for a tablet/netbook/wacom, and pockets for mice, pens, etc. I’ve designed it in Inkscape, using the original Majora vector I created as a guide.
