Finally finished Oscar (this week have had the flu, just not motivated at all) . . . I really enjoyed making Oscar. This pattern is from e-book "Stitch Zakka". To put my own stamp on Oscar, I didn't use satin stitch around the eyes, I used chain stitch and am quite pleased with the results. He has been fibre filled and has a small bag of rice inside for stability - don't want him toppling off the shelf!
Went searching for backing fabric and I couldn't resist a little French General (of course) - I selected a piece from the Chateau Rouge layer cake and it has toned in quite well. There could be many uses for Oscar - huge pincushion, door stop or just a lovely little pillow.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend and doing something you enjoy! Until next time, SuziQ xx
