And these little animals are going to Houston Quilt Market

These are my original designs made for Lonni Rossi who is a fabric designer for Andover. These are made out of her new fabric lines which will be shown at her Schoolhouse at the Houston Quilt Market.  The Giraffe fabric was just perfect! He stands approx 8" tall. I had a lot of fun figuring out how to make the stomach gusset for the Cat and Elephant. The faces are hand embroidered with thick black floss. I love to make french knots! I've only made one stuffed animal before, and it was from a pattern about 18 years ago! So, this was a really fun challenge that I enjoyed. I have an etsy shop but have never really done anything with it,,,,,,,this may get me started on etsy!?
