April Island Batik Ambassador Challenge

Funky Friends Factory is a new sponsor with Island Batik this year and what fun projects! We had our choice of stuffed friends to make and I chose Mickey Moose. I have this thing about moose. They are just so cute! I don’t know if it stems from the Rocky and Bullwinkle show as a child or just what, but I do realize they are not friendly creatures in the wild. But the cute factor is high on my barometer!

These are the fabrics I chose for my moose: Circle Dots Yellow and Optic Flower Yellow for the body, Fan Red Burgundy for the antlers, and Circle Dots Purple for the hooves and foot pads, and ear backs.

And here she is, born today, April 30, Mildred Moose, Milly for short. Love her.

She got loose!

More munching!

Here’s where I was able to nab her and bring her back home.

I used Aurifil 50 wt thread for piecing her together and Aurifil black 12 wt for hand embroidering her eyes.

I begin every project with an new Schmetz needle. I used a size 12 Microtex for this quilting fabric.

This being the last day of the month, be sure to check out the other Island Batik Ambassadors to see which Funky Friend they decided to craft.
