Bob has one problem, he has narcolepsy. You never know when he's going to flip around and fall asleep on you. Grin

Here's Bob when he has one of his sleeping spells, he just wouldn't wake up.

Ah much better! Bob just has to sleep it out on a comfy pillow on my bed. Smiley

Just wanted to share Bobs other side.
I accidentally sewed one of his eyes on backwards, so it's askew. I would fix it but the flannel I used does not take kindly to being stuffed firmly so I am worried it'll leave marks where the stitches were if I take the eye out to fix it. Sad

Hello craftster!
I wanted to share my most recent project:

Bob is stuck in a tree! Don't worry, he shortly realized that even if he did fall he had no bones to break in his fluffy body and hopped fearlessly out of the tree. The sad expression on his face earns him a lot of hugs, and when they hold him close he smells faintly of cotton candy.

Comments are welcome Smiley

I made Bob to test out making stuffed animals on a sewing machine. I have made several by hand before. I figured the straight lines would make it easier for me. I learned a lot with this project, I will continue to try to hone my sewing machine skills (it's so much faster!). The original pattern had a triangular long tail, but I strained the seams while stuffing  Shocked so I made the best of the situation and shortened his tail, earning him his name of Bob. His face is hand appliqued eyes and an embroidered nose and mouth.
PS: Don't worry Bob has 2 legs, the other one is just bracing him in the tree.
I haven't taken a good picture of the other side yet but I made that side have an asleep face. I will try to take more pictures soon.
I found the pattern here https://www.pinterest.com/pin/541980136384018817/

Alrighty. I started taking pictures of some of the crafts I have done.  Cheesy

Here is my embroidered pegasus:

Here is a closeup of the face:

I used two strands of embroidery floss throughout. You can see in the closeup of the face that I started experimenting with using two different color strands of floss together in the hair.

Does anyone have a suggestion for pencil marks? I had it in my school bag and a pencil got on the fabric Sad

I got the pattern from Andrea Zuill's blog:

I will try to take more pictures and upload them soon.

Haha, this post was perfectly timed so I could put the images instead of the links.
