Long time lurker, first time poster.
This axolotl is a bit rough because I made it using cheap felt, but I still love it.



It's based on this image I came across:
http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/113/3/f/axolotl_doodle_i_by_one_flying_fig-d3epuki.png

I hope to make it again on a larger scale with better felt and a thick satin line of black thread to get those crisp lines. Smiley

Very cute! I think it turned out nicely, cheap felt or not.

LOVE IIIT. Seriously awesome. I have an Axolotl and I wanna make an axolotl hoop now to represent it. I dunno if it'll be as awesome as yours though. Keep embroidering!

Thanks, guys! The more I look at it, the more I'm dissatisfied. It was my first attempt at felt embroidery, and I haven't done a lot of embroidery in general, so I can't really be surprised that it's not exactly what I wanted. Guess my inner perfectionist is showing, hehe.

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