That cheap stuff you are talking about is acrylic or polyester.  Felt can pill as well!

The project was posted by artcoffeewords, so I don't know what she used.  Smiley

Well I ended up starting with a hillbilly doin's pile of flesh instead.  It's larger and I'll be able to use a variety of stitches.  I was looking at the mermaid and all the little "u's" that are on her body and I didn't feel like doing a bazillion little scallop stitches.  But my hillbillies are looking great!  Plus my back looks so great thanks to all the tips in the 'discussion' forum about making the back neat.  No knots!

I finished yesterday and yes ma'am I will post the front and back Wink  However, my hubby has stepped out and he is the one with the camera phone-- so the pictures won't be as close up as the ones other people post-- we don't have a digital camera.

Thanks for the compliment!  I made it for myself.  However, since I want it to remain relatively clean, I am using it as a hand towel in our bathroom and not in the kitchen Wink  However in a few months, I'll be cranking out homemade embroidered Xmas gifts.....
