Trial Run....

I made this little hanging thing..ornament maybe?....Yesterday. I found some bright colored cloth napkins in the $1 section at Target. I picked up a few hoping to be able to embroider on them.
It worked ok, but the material was pretty thin. It frayed A LOT when I cut it so I sewed it inside out. I was thinking this sort of thing could be an ornament, pin cushion, or as Henry suggested, a pillow for a stuffed animal.
I got the pattern from a cool site called Urban Threads. I just transfered it on with a disappearing pen and stitched around. The black eyeballs are french knots. I was proud of myself for figuring out how to do that!! The top is a blanket stitch..I could not figure out how to close it so I had to do that stitch on the outside.
