When you cut long fur remember to only cut the backing material so you don't cut the fur on the top. Here I also trimmed the sides, leaving me half the width of the tail, plus seam allowance on both sides.
What do you do with a tail pattern and a hunk of fur?
Mr. Squirrel's tail is pinned on right now. I'm messing around with the idea of a piece of wire inside. So many variables!
Anyway his ears turned out better than I thought.
