Do your creations evolve as you make them?

I always start with a clear plan in my head . . .this is going to be a girl bear and I have the perfect little piece of lace for her to wear. Maybe even some millinery and pearls !!!

She will be sweet and dainty . . . .

Any sometimes my plan even follows though with what I had in mind : )

And other times I think he will be cute and chubby ~ a mischievous boy bear!
Maybe a little sailor.

But then I have enough mohair remaining, lol, to make a mini bear from the same fabric and I think . . . oh wouldn't a mommy and baby bear be so cute !!!!

But then I discover the cutest little doll sweater, that happens to fit my bear perfectly!!! I hand dye it from cream to a wonderful shade of green. It is around Earth Day so I think . . . this little bear with be called Terra in honor of Earth Day and she will hold the secrets to a greener happier world.

So that is how she evolved !!!!
Do your designs and plans stay the same from start to finish?
