Pods From Clarissa Clarendon's tutorial

Here are some pods I have stitched together and stuffed with polyester batting. alongside you can see some of the eco dyed without rules fabric I made them from. Clarissa works mainly in freeform 3D handing constructs. I was hoping to make a flatter pikorua - a Maori symbol representing combining cultures/families/individuals. I have tried pinning my pieces together but they haven't looked good. I think I will need to make a template and attach them using that and then maybe bind the whol together with some sort of thread or wire. It still may not work and be what I am looking for so I might just eventually be left making a collaged Pikorua from fabric that i can quilt. I need time to think and experiment with this
