boyish babushka finished

i have been hard at work this week finishing off the boyish babushka that Sarena asked me to make. he is a one red robin design but tweaked a little ;0) although he is gorgeous, there are bits i don't like but i will keep my mouth shut or Kris might come down the hill and smack me *_*
i love the fabric and this felt colour is much better than the green.
i changed the eye shape a little and i didnt add any cheeks so it would be a little less girly.
i embroidered the baby's name on the side. i find it hard to embroider neatly when i don't have the outline to follow.
this angle shows the backing fabric...a smart comment from one of my followers on my other blog pointed out how well the light blue matched from the four fabrics i had to choose from.
after this photo was taken i added two green buttons to the side and stitched up the back (that is the bit i am not happy with, shh don't tell Kris) overall i am very happy with how this boy turned out and if i was able to work on it without interruptions it doesn't take that long to make.
the babushka is off to its new owner tomorrow which means it leaves me free to work on a few projects i have up my sleeve. i need to update my etsy shop but to do that i need to make some things!!
ok it is after 11pm AGAIN i am hoping to get a full nights sleep without anyone waking me (the girls are full of antibiotics and steroids)
by the time you read this it might even be FRIDAY yipee!!

Looks really good.
I love the idea of personalising them with the emroidered name/
You can alway write it on with chalk as a guide...
