cut out project

I sent this off to my family in the UK....

there is an adorable little grandiegirl there....



who lives in a tall house with a big tree in the yard ....



... with a bouncy dog....



I made it from felted blanketing....


lots of blanket stitching around all those edges....


... this is what the back looked like after stitching all the red down.....


.... something quite different..... I like it.....


... and they like it too!....
