Here is another one - I like the shape of this one better than the dog - which I plan to redo.



Close up of face and hair:



I need to practice my embroidery but I do love working with linen.
I will work on the dog and repost later this week.

I LOVE the face on this one! The newsprint fabric for the nose adds a lot of interest.

Yes, I'm loving the newprint fabric also. But it has weird text on it about prostitutes, so I have to try to find the "clean" sentences.

And the challenge is the stitching. I want it to look carefree and rustic, but then it feels too messy for me. So I'll keep trying.

I am in love with these dolls but I agree; the hard part is making them look messy after spending so much time perfecting my stitches.  I have one in the works but I think that he's too neat.

I am totally willing to "sacrifice" myself, Smmarrt: you can send BOTH your JJ-inspired critters to ME!
Hahaha (yes, I know not very funny, but when I myself laugh at least someone is laughing!)

I love this critter too! Its face is great! (and funny with the part of the weird text  Grin )
Imperfection is what a critter like this needs! So just go with the flow and don't pay too much attention to stitching. Maybe watch a little tv while sewing?
I love, love, love the heart!

I don't agree that this one is better than your dog! I somehow feel I need to speak up for him, I love him the way he is!
Both critters are unique and great, Smmarrt!
