Here are some pics of the completed project(s). Please try to ignore the awful picture quality (which is probably what is killing me on etsy, from my peer critiques). I am counting the days until I can get the new Sony HDNA camera... I am hoping you don't have to be a great photographer if you have 14.5 megapix, right? ;-)
This is the largest of the 4, and my favorite. Sam looks wistfully at Sophie,
as she haughtily stands on her pedestal of books,
with potential love-birds fluttering about.
The crest of the "Little Ghostie Who (Thought He) Could".
You gotta love those tiny little teeth!
Hedgie waves "Bonjour!" as he walks through the forest of one tree.
I am still contemplating whether I should fill in the beret with red, or just leave it outlined. What do you think?
Who DOESN'T love Creeping Bunny...
especially as he creeps up to nap your mug of hot tea!
(Did I mention I need a new camera?)
What a fun project. These were my experiment, and now I can't wait to embellish clothing, etc. with the cute little critters. Check out http://www.sublimestitching.com/ for these from Emily Martin and many other awesome patterns. I think the Julie West patterns are next on my list.
If anyone out there is also working on the Black Apple patterns (or any other SS pattern), email me a picture of your project. I would ♥♥♥ to see what other combos other crafty minds have thunk up...I will post the pics on my blog!
