 I got my amazing little sheep from Smeddley. I loved it in the pics but its so much cooler in person. The sheeps wool is so neat! Thank you so much! Glad my prizes are arriving too.  Smiley

Joyfulclover, your Tina Belcher comment made me cry laughing. I watched Bob's Burgers repeats while I made them... That and the Walking Dead. Great combo. Lol.
 And I forgot to mention that that they were done with Intense pencils. You're absolutely right, drawn, watered with a paint brush and then heat set.
 I just finished my nieces request for an elephant so I'll add that one in the morning.
 * Added. I also added how they were made. Thanks for reminding me.

 And you should join the STS. I do the Fall rounds because I am slow to get stuff ready for my shop. It's my all time favorite swap! So many great people and great items.  Cheesy

 I made one like this for the 4x6 art swap and enjoyed the process so much I decided to make a couple more. Here are all of them together.

 I remade the original one I made for the swap and I think I like this one a little more. The foxes nose looks a little better and less cat like than the original.


 My cats are my babies so I had to make one but I think this one looks more like a rainbow cat than my intentions. Still learning how to do this type of coloring.


 Bunnies are just naturally adorable. This makes me miss my old buddy Bunicula.


 Mice are cute too. Here is a little one with a flower.

 
 and last but not least, a sloth. Just because.


 Overall I think the fox is my favorite still. I wish I would have darkened up the other some more but maybe next round. I plan on offering these up in my Fall STS store.
 
Here is the final one. My Niece saw these and requested an elephant. her b-day is in 3 days so I whipped this one up. Bunny1kenobi suggested turning his mouth up a bit after I said he looked sad. I think I will do that.  Wink


 After reading some comments I realized I forgot to say how I did these. I drew them out with Sharpie on off white fabric. Then colored them in with Inktense pencils and used a paint brush to water that down and set it in. Then I ironed them to heat set it. The background blue is the same off white fabric that I painted army green, magenta, royal blue, and teal. Then I put a coat of dark blue glitter paint over it. I used floss to tack the font and drawing down after I cut them out and then went over the edges with some decorative stitches on my machine. I love decorative stitches.  Tongue I wanted a kind of shabby, scrappy look so I left some threads untrimmed and set them slightly astray.
 Here are some in progress shots of when I was drawing them.


 Thanks for checking them out!  Kiss

 That is amazing! I bet you used the entire ink out of that pen. LOL! Well worth it.  Wink

 I have two swaps already set for the end of the month and a lot of overtime work for my job so I can't do this now. I'll have to stalk the gallery though and see all your amazing creations.

 Just wanted to let those that won my raffle prizes know that I will be sending them all out tomorrow. I was able to get the ATCs done over the weekend and should be dropping by the Post Office on my break tomorrow. Would have been done today but it's Daylight Savings for some of us and I was unable to function enough to remember to bring them this morning, knew that would happen.  Tongue

 That looks so intricate but worth it. They turned out great!

 Brilliant suggestions Bunny1kenobi. I have only read a few of the books on the lists. I am not normally into classics at all. I know some people adore them but I'm more into easy reads.  Tongue

Hahaha! Storerboughtcreations, a pig works perfectly in Lord of the Flies. Not only are there wild boar but they call a fat kid Piggy.
