Found out you can not use leather dyes on black doesn't show up. so, i searched the cabinet and tried different markers and colored pencils and decided i liked these crayons the best.


Here it is all painted and finished.

And the back. I shamelessly used up all bobbins that had thread in them from previous projects. haha  Backing was piece from the stash


I used several different threads


I might need a little leather break for a bit until I decide which animal I want to tackle next. I have a request from a friend for a wolf or a frog and don't have a pattern for either.
