So, I just finished this little guy for Ludi, for the whimsical shrine swap! Cheesy I admit, he is quirky, unusual, curious, weird, odd, (gross!?), funny. I had a lot of reservations and anxiety including this guy in the swap, but I did anyway and she really seemed to like him! Cheesy

His body is made of cotton/viscos/rayon blend. His guts are made of felt. He is mounted on cork board and displayed in a hand painted/stained/stamped frame. 😊

Hey Sophie, thank you for informing me of my faux pas. I am still new to craftster and am trying to get the hang of things. I did not claim this as my own pattern. I can appreciate the learning experience, but perhaps a private message would be more helpful for us new inexperienced craftsters so we can correct our error before being judged publicly.

Awww, Cryssoleil, don't feel bad - most things are made from patterns and not everyone always points them out.  I have that pattern, too, and I can see how much you've made this project something unique, aside from the body of the frog.  The frame, and the way you did the innards is brilliant!

I always assume things are made from patterns, unless it says otherwise.  If I want to know, I'll ask!  Then I can get the pattern for myself.  But I'm wary of linking paid patterns in my posts, because of the whole "I'm afraid they'll think I'm selling" thing, which is a big no-no in Craftster land (though it shouldn't be a problem if it's someone else's, but, still...).

Congrats on being featured, I love this!
