My 6 year old daughter loves manatees, and my 4 year old son likes them, too. I thought I'd stitch up this manatee while we were sitting and watching a movie. I used the chain stitch and six strands of DC color 318 on a blue cotton fabric. I love the googly eyes! I love finding coloring pages to stitch....so much fun! And, so many options!

Oh, he's so cute! What a great idea to use coloring pages as embroidery patterns!

Sometimes the simplest embroideries are the best.  He has so much character!  Cheesy
