Other Half’s Little Present

Meet Oscar the baby Panda! Oscar doesn’t like to eat bamboo – instead he loves popcorn! His other hobbies include chatting on Facebook and playing online poker 🙂

I made little Oscar for my other half as he likes pandas! Unfortunately I don’t have any safety eyes so instead I did a group of French knots with 2 strands of embroidery thread. The black and white parts of his eyes and nose are made from felt and since Oscar is a boy, I had to have a blue ribbon for him. I also decided to make a little name tag for him from blue card – can’t have people forgetting his name can we?

I wonder who else will accompany Oscar – he’s a bit lonely at the moment I think – plus he can’t spend all his time and money on Poker! Naughty little Oscar 🙂

Hope you like him as much as I do!

A Design For Mum

Standard

Started this Mother’s Day design yesterday afternoon. It’s from Cross Stitch Crazy March 2012, Issue 161. Its not a big design and will not take me much longer – have a few more cross stitches to do then the rest is just backstitch.

I’ve decided to make it into a card and have got some lovely backing paper for it – ooh might raid my ribbon stash too.

I do like the hanging heart design too – might stitch that as well if I get time.

I’m thinking about purchasing cross stitch design software but not entirely sure which to get. Will have to do a bit more research I think. Have any of you used design software? If so, any recommendations? 🙂

Must go, have my hippy cushion to finish now that cushion pad has turned up! Yay!

Ta Da!

Here is the finished project that I posted about earlier. So did you guess right?

Very cute little flowery slippers 🙂

Had to completely re-do the one slipper as I forgot to crochet into the back post only which helps make the sides of the slipper more defined. (only realised when I had nearly finished the thing!)

All around the top edge are chain spaces which I may thread some ribbon through and tie at the back of the slipper – think it might look cute. Better dig out my ribbon stash 🙂 Could also put a button in the middle of each flower – what do you think?
