Albino baby bat.. so far

Here are the beginnings of my albino baby bat. She is much smaller than Bellaluna, as she is meant
to be her baby. I tatted the body first, then the head. It took me 4 tries to get the face and head small enough for her little body. I need to find some very small red animal eyes or round top buttons to put in as her eyes.
 I am now working on her arms and finger frames. This is the part I attach the beaded webbing to. The legs and then the wing webbing is next. I have one wing frame almost finished, and I will show a picture of that when it is done.

She's so cute already! I can't wait to see her when she's all done and hanging next to her mama.

This is really gorgeous. Yes, the left pic already shows a bat-like animal. My first glance at the right pic made me think of a lamb. OK, just a suggestion, but wouldn;t that be a nice next project?? Just kidding, this is really amazing. Love it when people are so creative that they can work without diagrams or patterns.. .

Thanks everyone! I finished her wing frames and legs this evening. Tomorrow I start on the webbing.. if I can find my beads. Those rascals keep disappearing on me!

and Tattingrid..a friend of mine suggested a lamb, too. Hmmm.. since I knit now too, and they seem to covet the lambs... maybe!
