Trimmings Competition Part II

So with my second batch of trimmings I went with the neutral colours so I could add whatever colour I liked.... wouldn't you know it I added a touch of pink! Can't get away from it. I liked the sleepy creatures I made for my first entry and had lots of ideas on making variations of these little guys. This one was bigger than the first, about 30 cm high, which allowed me to play with the pattern on the body. I also made a little teacup with an embroidered outline. Both of these pieces had various added fabrics. The grey zig zag in the ears of the creature was from Kelani, (one of my favourite online fabric stores, I now have some cushions made with this fabric.) The other fabrics were various spots and zigzags that I had.
I had so many more ideas for things to create but have run out of time. At least I have more trimmings left that I can play with to make other things when I get time.
