I really estimated my 2nd generation shell fabric to be SO exact, it's almost scary!
I decided to try an experiment this time around and cut the tails a little shorter because they taper so much at the tip. I just couldn't turn the entire thing last time I made these armadillos.
I cut it so that I could sew the regular seam allowance and then be able to turn it and sew a little bit at a 90 degree angle instead of tapering right to a triangle shape.
Even though the tails were cut 1 inch shorter, they actually are longer than the original armadillos! It actually adds about 1" in length! Pretty amazing...
2 down! After I sew on some eyes, these will be ready to ship!
