ONE MORE ORNAMENT AND PILLOW

The last part of this order was for a teen boy. My friend requested a Bengal Tiger Ornament. This was a challenge....I started with their logo and built on it. It was like doing a paper snowflake when I cut the black felt. Stitching it took a steady hand. But I am well pleased with it.
The pillow was to be for the University of Alabama. I put it on a hounds tooth fabric in honor of "Bear Bryant". He usually wore a hat made from this fabric. It seemed like Roll Tide belonged on the other side......

Finished Ornaments

These go to the kids I made the pillows for. On the back is their name and 2010. Again I had no pattern but used coloring pages and do my own thing.

The hand beading on this just makes it beautiful on the tree.

I mad the lizard with pipe cleaner inside and so you can pose him on a branch......


Or hang him by his tail........

You may notice the heart on my tree......my precious husband made that for me when we were first married. I simply love it!

Shark Pillow


This is the shark pillow.....I used a coloring page for the idea and adjusted it and added the 3-D parts. The tail and fins are lightly filled and it added a lot. Now on to the ornaments.
