I have been wanting to do a growth chart in the same style as my pillows for quite a while and I finally got around to marking it off my list.
The animals are a mix of embroidery and felt. I wanted them to be more on the realistic side I think it turned out pretty well.
The fox. I was a little worried about the fact that he is supposed to be a fox getting across because the felt is a little more brown then I wanted but a friend saw the chart at the shower and knew what he was right away so whew! Hopefully people won't think it's a dog or something.
I second guessed myself a LOT on doing the birds in full embroidery but I think they turned out.
Bees. I love them, but not in real life!
I am digging hives to. The Black Apple had a sketch a while back that had a girls skirt as a bee hive and I have been even more jazzed about them since... it would be a really cool costume or just to make a skirtthat looked like that... too bad I dont make clothes... or maybe it is a good thing because I think I would try it! Mum? What do you think?
Totally digging the nest. The twigs making it up were a lot of fun to do.
I used Song bird in Teal by Holly Anderson for the back and gave myself two ways to hang it since I couldn't decide what I would like more.
