finished penguin on skates ornament

Does this Sweet Skating Penguin look familar...

Like you've seen this gal before...

Right?

Truth be told...you have!

YEP...it's the same Applique Design I used for my Flannel Pajamas I made a few weeks ago!

I only made a slight change...by removing the "BRRR" word from underneath.

I LOVE this little gal so...

How about YOU?

I stitched the girly penguin onto a piece of stone colored cotton twill...

it was the PERFECT background for the fabrics and threads I chose for the Penguin itself.  

Be sure to double click the picture to enlarge it so you can see it up close and personal...

and be able to see that glitzy vinyl I used for the scarf and the skates too!

OMG...it's Super Cute!

I also used my go to "stabilizer" of choice for ornamants...Warm and White 100% Cotton Batting. 

I layered it with my cotton twill and then loaded it onto my frame. 

Just as I had done on some of my other Christmas Ornaments...I mounted it onto Sticky Board...

I then added a second slightly larger sticky board...

that was covered with a cute black and white buffallo check cotton fabric.

I also added a glittery silver cording around the edge of the actual stitched piece...

to give it a little POP!

Isn't she just the SWEETEST?
