Noah's Ark Project Continues

When I began to research Noah and his wife for my Noah's Ark project, a few characteristics became very clear. From looking at pictures I was reminded of the fact that Noah and his wife were simple, humble folk.So dressing them as such was important. It was also very clear that Noah was to have a flowing white beard and a Staff.

So I went to work and here is what I came up with.
  I found some hand spun natural wool in my drawer which I used for their hair and Noah's beard.
I also had some hand dyed wool felt in coordinating greens which worked well for their robes which I decorated with some simple embroidery.

Here they are on the Ark

The animals are almost ready to embark.
The excitement is building. Say tuned!

PS I am currently finalizing the pattern for this project which will be made up of a set of three patterns. I also plan to have some starter kits available which will take all the had work out of finding the materials for this project. More to come soon.
