This year I am giving friends crafty presents. I am giving away Kanzashi flower brooches and headbands, that I am showing on a different post. But when looking what else I could do with fabric remnants I found this cool project from dear Martha Smiley http://www.marthastewart.com/264830/no-sew-fabric-pet-portrait

Immediately I envision the funniest portrait for a friend with a pug.

I started making a portrait with fabric and felt. When I finished I showed it to my bf, and he thought my friends will think I was an oddball as the portrait turned out a bit creepy. Smiley Well, so I changed the way I am going to present it and took it out of the frame (sorry I only got pictures of my work on the frame) and turned it into a funny Xmas card.
Now this portrait is the front of a Xmas card. I just added cardboard at the back and made a cardboard frame on the front. I think it looks funny and my friends won't think I totally lost it!
Anyway, here is my portrait. Enjoy!

I'm not sure exactly what it would take to make a pug look creepy (they're the sweetest goggies!).  You did a great job.  Your friend will love it!

I think I'll try doing this on some dog tees.  My pugs will then wear themselves!

@ kritterkarin I meant that my friends will have though it was creepy that I was making a framed portrait of a pug, a pug altar... he, he...
