He's lovely! I especially like his mane and white sock. Cute!

Thank you all for your comments. I feel I should add that I will not be fondling Tom in ANY way (he got enough free kicks that way while I was making him).  Shocked I am keeping him separate from a lady librarian I made not so long ago  (pics on my blog) - I don't want her glasses to get steamed up.  Cheesy Also, I made a conscious decision not to recreate the bulge from the original pic - I think his likeness is potent enough without it.  Grin

And thanks for the tip re: thrift stores, but they are thin on the ground here in Holland. It's a good excuse for me to put an order in online - I know my local bead store doesn't have any gold chain, as I wanted some a few months back for a jewellery commission.

I haven't posted any of my stuff for a while, but I thought I'd post my latest make in time for Valentine's Day.  Grin So enjoy, you lucky, lucky ladies.  Wink



And in case you are in any doubt about who that is, here's the photo I used as inspiration:



I don't have any gold chain in my stash, or he would've had the medallion as well.  Grin

Lots of great ideas, thank you. I will experiment and see which method works best.

Wow! Your stitching is fantastically neat!
Thank you! I've had a few people comment on that recently, it never looks quite neat enough to me.

Embroidery's pretty easy to do once things are sewn up. You can worm the needle and thread, and knot, through one of the side seams [A good way to make sure it goes through, and doesn't catch on the fabric is to poke the needle through backwards. But with something that small, it might take a little while to work the needle around inside it to get it poking out the right place. If you stitch back through the previous stitch, you can keep them fairly loose [ie, won't pull the fabric], but stop it from pulling and making the thread loose.
I think I understand what you mean *squinting and sticking her tongue out while she pictures it* I will give your ideas a go. Thanks, everyone.

Ooh, that might work - I was too focussed on embroidering a mouth on. I could do a little pink pout for her.  Cheesy Thanks!

I knew it! I knew if I posted a pic, someone would reply.  Wink I like the mouthless look too, but it's a commission, so I have to do as I'm told.   Cheesy

No-one? *weeps*

Would it help if I posted a picture of the item in question?

Hi there,

I had a commission from a friend to make a strawberry from felt, and I didn't put a mouth on it, only eyes (what can I say, I like the expression of staring felt items  Grin). Anyway, my friend has seen the item and loves it except...she'd like it to have a mouth. It's all sewn up - is there a neat, easy way to add an embroidered mouth now?  Undecided

TIA.

That is really cute. I love the colours and your stitching is beautifully neat.
