ive recently started designing my own patterns first i started with big bears and managed quite well.ive started designing minis(ive done a couple allready)but now im trying to give them muzzles and keep ending up with pointy noses and no neck...arrrrrrrgghhhh!!!!!!its enough to make a grown woman cry like a little and dont even get me started on legs(too skinny)

is there certain things that need to be done differently when designing minis (compaired to bigguns)
am i just insane?(no..dont answer that!)

i dont have a scanner but if it would help someone explain it to me ill draw a pattern with paint and pm it to them and maybe they could let me know where ive gone wrong

thats if anyone has time ofcourse

oh i feel calmer allready just from writing this down!!
thanks for listining to me vent.. bear_grin

I've got literally hundreds of patterns for fabric minis in storage, as I designed a couple of kit lines and made only minis for a dozen years. PM me your sketch. Do you have a digital camera? That's how to get the ideas sent around the quickest.

I'll be happy to take a look. Email them to me as I don't check in as often as I'd like.
I find designing minis a lot different. The proportions are definately different than for big bears. Arms and legs need to be fatter, everything needs to be exaggerated for them to come out well.
