Here's a piece I made for MamanTattoo in the Yule Swap.  This was tons of fun!   Cheesy

And very interesting. I saw this where your partner shared it on the swap thread....those eyes!!! They permeate the soul! Very intense. Is this on a hoop? I really enjoy the fungus colors. Perfect for this type of project.

When I saw your partner post this in the Yule Swap Gallery, I instantly guessed that this was your work.  Wink  It will be so pretty in different colors and leaves!  I can imagine a different one for each season.

    Aw, thanks!  I'm looking forward to making one in Fall colors with wool felt. I might try tinting the felt also, for more variation.  Lots to work with in this theme!  Smiley

    I love this! The 3-D component works so well and his expression is perfect! If I may ask, how did you secure the piece to cardboard?

    Thank you!
