My project for this quarter's Challenge - Animal Kingdom, was inspired by our younger grandson and his love for these magnificent creatures.
He has several books that feature a Highland Cow who shares his name, which are frequent requests for his bedtime story. So, when it came to deciding upon a project a Highland Cow was the obvious choice!
Let me introduce you to Hairy, the Highland Cow :)
I had notions of all sorts of fancy applique for my handsome, hairy creature but in the end went for simple applique.
Two black buttons for the eyes are just peeking out from behind that rather unruly head of faux suede hair. I chose the faux suede because I thought that it would not fray, but it seems to be shredding in places along the cut edges, so I might have to revisit that at some stage.
I was delighted to come across the spiky, thistle fabric in my stash (an Anna Marie Horner impulse buy many moons ago!) as it is the perfect background for a Highlander, don't you think?
A pillowcase backing and we are all set for bedtime reading when our grandsons visit next week!
Looking forward to seeing how the rest of my fellow Endeavourers have responded to this quarter's challenge, I will, no doubt, be amazed and inspired as always :)
