Greetings to all…

It’s time for a new “flattie” project…the Muffin Man with a customer…it was inspired by a picture that came up in a recent Pinterest page…

The pattern, picture of the sized pattern (printed out multiple times on one sheet because I sometimes have to start over when and if I make a bad cut) plus a picture of all the major parts cutout and ready for assembly are below…

Updates later…plus a picture of the completed piece…stay tuned…

My very best regards…

Howard…

just about ready for primer and painting...i'll let the pictures tell the story...

note...the girl will be painted before being glued in place...it's easier to paint that way...stay tuned...

update...5-17-2020...

the finished piece pictured here...and as always...i'm questioning my colors choices for part of the flattie...the girl...probably should have gone with just a pink and blue and left off the green...

my very best regards...
