Hi there!  I'm kind of new here - though, I've been lurking for about a year or two - and this is the first project I'm posting here, so let me know if I screw something up.

My son is now eight months old but he still doesn't have his room completed (no time, plus we kind of just prefer to have him sleep in our room).  So I'm kind of leisurely making things that will go in his room once finished.  At any rate, this was my first completed project for the nighttime nature themed room we're planning.  I plan on hanging this over the changing table so that he might stay still when I try to change him... he's a touch wiggly.

















The stitches in the faces are a bit messy, but that's territory I'm completely unfamiliar with.  It was more of an exercise in trying something new.  This was my first time making anything of this sort.  Clothing is pretty much all I've ever sewn.  Overall I'm happy with it, and quite proud that my design actually worked out to almost exactly as I envisioned it.  Yay!

What do you think?  I never mind critiques so feel free to voice any opinions.

Awe, it's really cute! I also love that you can tell people that you made a "Batmobile" and then watch their faces in confusion when they see a "bat mobile."

Well, that's what I'd do at least!  Cheesy

Thank you, everyone for the love.  To be honest I was really apprehensive about posting my project; there's just so much talent here.  Now I'm a little more confident about posting more projects.  Again, thanks ^_____________^

You shouldn't be apprehensive .... this is really creative and cute. You did a wonderful job on it .... and messy lines just add character. That's what I tell everyone.

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.
