New Toys

so one of the kids' hobbies is de-stuffing their toys. someone told me about unstuffed toys so i decided to give it a try. using what fleece i had, i made some flat toys.

so far, quality control has given them a paws up.

Day 20
I learned how to do fabric stenciling at an FCL class. Now I'm raiding Mike's closet for shirts. The middle one is a bot hard to see, but it 's a deer coming out of the pocket. The water tower reads "Save Ferris"
added: these were the first run where i used paper ink instead of fabric ink. so into the washer, and out comes the ink. i had to pick out all of the embroidery and redo the stenciling.
