B.A.R.K. Production Journal: Terry Cloth
With head construction complete (except for the ears) it's time to start fabricating. Because Antorn fleece (or Muppet fleece as it's commonly known) is synonymous with the look of Muppets, I usually try to stay away from it. I think it's important that our puppets have their own style. Instead, I will be using terry cloth. This material is easy it come by, it takes dye well, and it has a nice texture. Working with terry cloth can be challenging because it tends to fray easily, but If you are careful it should be fine.
