just wrapped the One Fab Zippered Pouch swap and stitched this sleepy guy for my partner Craftineer.  please excuse the photo overload, i'm so darn proud of this project!  the pattern was a freebie from http://starshapedandshiny.blogspot.com



this was a blast for me, experimenting with different type of stitches for filling.



i used several different books for reference and ideas, my favorite being a book called "Creative Needlework" that was published in 1969 that i picked up at the thrift store for a whopping 29 cents!



my original plan was to make it super colorful, but decided to go with shades of blue, my partners favorite.



and one more of the finished pouch, which measured a little over 5x5 inches



thanks for looking Smiley

You should be proud of it. It looks great! Looks like a peacock cat in those shades of blue.
