Now that I've handed these over to my expectant friends, I can post them up on the internet!

They're expecting a girl and her nursery is decorated in pale yellows, greens and blues, with an animal theme. Both her parents love animals so I think she's probably going to grow up to be a zoologist or something! I offered to make a couple of things to go in the nursery and got a bit carried away Smiley

I basically stalked my friend's Pinterest for ideas! She'd pinned this (discontinued?) fox fabric on Spoonflower:

So I made some bunting:

and a felt fox stuffie (I love him so much I might have to make one for myself!):

I made three cushion covers:

An elephant hoop (the mother-to-be loves elephants):

And two mini (4"?) hoops featuring their cats (with little black seed beads for eyes) Smiley

My friends were very pleased with my creations (and I am very pleased to have a rest - for the time being!) Smiley

Everything is so pretty and well made! I really like the fox but the lil cats are so cute too with their tails hanging down  Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Everything is so nicely done - but I think the cats are my favourite.  Great job!

I love the little details, especially the elephant's beaded blanket!  The fox is elegant.  Great work!  I know your friend will be so happy.
