Anyway, when I saw the artwork for these, I had to do them........and although the facial features are "simple" I think they are very expressive. These come in four sizes for the embroidery machine. They come in two styles - one with stripes, one without stripes. As they are applique, they are pretty quick to stitch. The biggest one is just about life size for a meerkat.
Quilting was done using the Sweet 16 - I am enjoying using this machine! The Vlysofix was having some sort of attack so even though the Meerkats where originally done with the trapunto technique, I had to over stitch some bits to try and disguise the puckering from the glue. Still turned out pretty well.
Designs are now up at Etsy - see side bar.
And for a chuckle - Meerkat Blooper Reel!
Have a great day.
