Disney Pixar Blog Hop #3

Welcome to Funky Cards and
Disney Pixar Blog Hop #3

September 24th and September 25th
If you arrived here from Ellen's blog, you are in the right place, if you happened here by chance, please head back to the beginning by clicking on the DISNEY button above so you don't miss any of the adorable Disney projects today:) 

After sharing 2 exciting Disney Pixar Blog Hops with you, we are excited to bring you hop #3.  The same group of talented crafters have designed and created a variety of adorable and clever projects that I am sure will inspire you.

 I have decided to do something a bit different this time.  For those of you who follow my blog, you know that I have been doing a lot of home decorating lately.  I really wanted to experiment with a homemade pillow for my craft room and when I heard that we were having another Disney blog hop, I had an idea!!
I wanted to cross stitch a pillow with a Disney character.  To start this project, a sketch was made using a light box, which allowed the image to be transfered onto the material.

Using a colored image of Woody from Toy Story as a template, the outline was filled in by cross stitching the appropriate color.  Once the cross stitching was complete, the pillow could be finished and stuffed.  I just love how it turned out.  What do you think?
