The Point of It All has a series of animal faces which can either be made into pillows or pajama bags. I think the pajama bag idea is nifty and different as a present for children or grandchildren. The 10mesh canvas also means the project won't take a lifetime to complete like an 18mesh Christmas stocking.
I'm using a double strand of silk 'n ivory. I could also have used Trio, but I only stock a few colors.
The background is being stitched in the nobuko stitch. The eyes are done in basketweave and continental. I had originally selected fancy fur for the background but soon realized that the pattern stitch wasn't showing through all the fuzz.
