Plush team self-portrait

Well, it's not really a self-portrait in the usual way. I went with a more representational feeling--I just think the wide open arms and smiley squinty eyes makes it look like the stuffie is ready to give a big hug.

Embroidering on wool felt is a lot easier than the acrylic stuff, but it's also much stiffer to turn inside out. I had to rip out a couple of seams to open up my too-small space. Fortunately, sewing it closed with a hidden stitch worked super swell, so you'd not even notice it unless you were looking for it.

All in all, I still think it looks like one of my stuffies but with a slightly different design.

It's marvelous to see my haphazard patchwork experiment live on in something so cuuuuuuute... and quirky and fun!
Thank you!

I was saving it for something really great and then thought of using it for this stuffie! :D
