Today’s project is probably one of the easier ones we’ve done all year. You can whip up these cuties in under 20 minutes … even my more elaborate bunny took me just 30 minutes to make! But be sure that you have purchased Christi’s book so that you can see all the steps in full of how to make this cute little guy.

Polymer Clay Squirrel – “What-atorial”
Well …. sometime technology is a real pain in my squirrel tail. I used a “real camera” instead of my iPhone to take your tutorial pictures this week hoping that since we’re now back to “full tutorials” that they would be awesome pics.

ARG! *Insert horrible frustrating sounds here* So … this being said today’s “tutorial” sadly will be more of a non-picture commentary on the project. I cried over this problem this morning, pulled myself together and then took a deep breath. So instead of a tutorial, today you get a “what-atorial” … my code name for “what just happened to my tutorial pictures?” Deep breath …. and moving on …
