ok my first attempt wasn't that interesting, so I added some scenery to my love bear.  a little pink roofed house and foliage makes for a much more hospitable living space on my scrubs.

This is my first project.  I took this picture with my webcam because it's not worth getting out my camera for.  Some of the stitches are wonky and I'm not sure why I tried satin stitching on my first try, but I think the overall effect is cute.  i love this little guy.  The pattern is from Badbird's.

I think I should add to it, like with flowers or hearts or something.  any suggestions would be awesome!

Very cute.  I agree some little hearts or flowers doodled around it would make it even sweeter.  Great idea to spiff up your jammies.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Very cute! I think little flowers around it would be cute. I also like it just the way it is.

thanks for the feedback.  he did look a bit lost and out of place, so I took the opportunity to learn more stitches.  I really like the effect of french knots but they can be really frustrating and fiddly.  the house is pretty wonky looking.  the house and flora I freehand copied from the Ondori patterns posted on doecdoe.blogspot.com.

I love the touch of the house and flowers.  I like the perspective you have done them in.  You'd never know you added them later.
