Smokey

The most meaningful pieces I create are those in memory of beloved pets. Smokey was a member of the Windham Fabrics team, and (if his expression gives us any clue ;)), a most discerning fabric expert.

The original photo…
…the pattern as drawn in Procreate…
…a first round of potential fabrics!…
…putting the pieces together – a great example of why you should use MistyFuse. The dark grey fabric looked ok before, but read as black when fused…yikes! time to peel and replace…

…and lots of stitching later. Many shades of grey (the more you use, the more lifelike the effect)…pebble stitch (lots)…whiskers in 12wt thread.
