Making Senna

Senna was lots of fun to make! She was first proposed at a dinner at least a year ago, and then when Anne and Geoff found out that no dogs were allowed at their wedding hall, we had to think of a way to bring Senna into the ceremony.

Scissors prototype to get the general shape here. Senna looks a little bit like a bear here.

Of course, there was a sketch first…

This version of Senna gets the snout approximately right, but her head is too wobbly on her shoulders so I want to make some changes.

You have to test each design a lot by putting it together with different people. Everybody figures it out a different way, and sometimes you learn a better way to do it just by watching them put it together.
