No, I didn't forget about the Let's Book It Challenge. I just had to put it on the back burner because I didn't have time to make random things from books. I need to be able to double dip for this challenge to work for me.
(wait, I just realized I have been double dipping with some of the Fluff Project stuff but. . .well, a lot of those are "books" but freebies I printed out from the internet so. . .eh, it doesn't matter).
THIS project was from an actual book I paid actual money for so it really fits the Book part of the Book It Challenge. So I'm feeling all official n'at.
That's the aforementioned book.
Let me just pause to say it is one of the cutest things I have ever had the privilege to look upon. And I look at tons of cute all the dang time, so that's saying something. This book made my sister lament that she needed to learn to embroider. Yeah, it's THAT kind of book.
And when they say "teeny tiny" they ain't blowing smoke up your skirt.
That's the embroidered merit badge I made for a swap next to the image I used (and edited) from the book.
I made my cat into a cool hoola hooping puss. Because that's how I am.
EXTREME CLOSE UP!
That bad boy is a mere 2 inches in size. TWO STINKING INCHES!! See, that's teeny tiny.
The edge stitching is a little rough but I'll improve on that (this was the first time I ever made a badge like this).
What? You have to wear it so it has to have a pin on the back.
The only downside of this book? Now I want to embroider every thing in my life with teeny tiny animals. EVERY THING!
