 I made one like this for the 4x6 art swap and enjoyed the process so much I decided to make a couple more. Here are all of them together.

 I remade the original one I made for the swap and I think I like this one a little more. The foxes nose looks a little better and less cat like than the original.


 My cats are my babies so I had to make one but I think this one looks more like a rainbow cat than my intentions. Still learning how to do this type of coloring.


 Bunnies are just naturally adorable. This makes me miss my old buddy Bunicula.


 Mice are cute too. Here is a little one with a flower.

 
 and last but not least, a sloth. Just because.


 Overall I think the fox is my favorite still. I wish I would have darkened up the other some more but maybe next round. I plan on offering these up in my Fall STS store.
 
Here is the final one. My Niece saw these and requested an elephant. her b-day is in 3 days so I whipped this one up. Bunny1kenobi suggested turning his mouth up a bit after I said he looked sad. I think I will do that.  Wink


 After reading some comments I realized I forgot to say how I did these. I drew them out with Sharpie on off white fabric. Then colored them in with Inktense pencils and used a paint brush to water that down and set it in. Then I ironed them to heat set it. The background blue is the same off white fabric that I painted army green, magenta, royal blue, and teal. Then I put a coat of dark blue glitter paint over it. I used floss to tack the font and drawing down after I cut them out and then went over the edges with some decorative stitches on my machine. I love decorative stitches.  Tongue I wanted a kind of shabby, scrappy look so I left some threads untrimmed and set them slightly astray.
 Here are some in progress shots of when I was drawing them.


 Thanks for checking them out!  Kiss

Jeezey Peezey cotton easy! I crush these HARD. I think the off-center, wonky layout with speciality stitching on olive green fabric really turns the saccharine sweet on its TAIL! (do you see what I did there?)

If I were Tina Belcher, I would lay on the floor and say: UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH because I'm having a hard time dealing with my love, here!

Are they drawn on white fabric with colored pencils, and heat set?


Also, I've never participated in the STS, but these make me want to think about what I could make!

Joyfulclover, your Tina Belcher comment made me cry laughing. I watched Bob's Burgers repeats while I made them... That and the Walking Dead. Great combo. Lol.
 And I forgot to mention that that they were done with Intense pencils. You're absolutely right, drawn, watered with a paint brush and then heat set.
 I just finished my nieces request for an elephant so I'll add that one in the morning.
 * Added. I also added how they were made. Thanks for reminding me.

 And you should join the STS. I do the Fall rounds because I am slow to get stuff ready for my shop. It's my all time favorite swap! So many great people and great items.  Cheesy

Great Apes and Elephants are MY.JAM. I dearly love how dreamy your little one is, and would not turn up the mouth corners. Even Eyeore needs love, and I think your elephant is sweetly melancholy.

Seeing the progress shots makes me realize how many more crafty types I have yet to try. And I always love mixed technique items, so double scha-wing on these!

Not kidding, while walking the dogs today I think I came up with a good STS item using empty Seresto canisters and lids. If I work on them now and again, I might have a nice little completed stash by then. I am going to pop over to that thread to get in the loop!

So cute!!! And, thanks for explaining how you made them! While many drawing skills are nowhere near as good as yours, I could use the technique for something simpler, I think. Great job with the details, too.
