Thank Goodness for UFOs

I`m talking about the craft variety of UFO (as in UnFinished Object). I`ve been meaning to finish this tiny teddy for a while now...& today he`s going to a very loving home in England. I started him about a year ago, & I can`t remember why I didn`t get him finished, I think I just got sidetracked (it happens quite often to me LOL). I was trying to think of something I could give to some relatives to take back home to England with them, so I went though my UFOs 2 days ago, & found this teddy just waiting for some finishing touches...I had to stuff him (in the nicest possible way) sew on his ears, attach his limbs (I used button joints, which is a bit easier to do with this size bear) embroider his nose, & add a pretty ribbon, & a chipboard heart inked with garnet Vivid ink, & clear embossing powder. All up he`s about 14 cm tall (or 5 & 1/2 inches), & if you look at the photo, I included a normal-sized playing card for reference. I hope he enjoys the trip LOL. One down, 100`s more to finish... Thanks for dropping by, & enjoy your day wherever you are. CU L8R

jajaja te ha quedado genial Vicky. Yo tengo un montón de UFO's por ahí. Recuerdo que empecé un jersey de punto (Knitted) para cuando naciera mi hija y nunca lo acabé (Marta tiene ya 12 años....)
You have done a great job on it! M.Carmen

Yes, I know all about UFO's Vicky! I'm afraid I have heaps of those.....mostly of the cross-stitch variety. I used to be able to do a lot of it while watching TV at night....but my eyesight just isn't what it used to be! It's great that you were able to finish this cute little fella!!
