Every home needs a house hippo. This little cross stitched guy won't try to build a nest or eat some of your snack food, but he can certainly hang around your home.
I like accuracy in plush animals and have made the markings and eyes like that of real hippos. Why use cross stitch? Because cross stitch allows me to make tiny details that would be difficult to do by another method. Who says that cross stitch is only good for flat things? Now you can stitch a doll using cross stitch for the details.
The animal is stitched as 18 pieces which are then cut out and sewn together. The tuft of hair on his tail is added using the "turkey work" stitch. Full assembly directions and turkey work instructions with illustrations are included.
This pattern was hand designed by a professional artist/crafts person
Finished size is approximately 7" tall to top of his ears x 6" wide from nose tip to back of tail when worked on 14 count fabric. The image is composed of 14 colors.
THIS IS NOT A KIT. THIS IS NOT A FINISHED PIECE.
Each pattern contains:
* Color picture of the finished image

Design contains some fractional stitches, backstitches and turkey work, appropriate for an intermediate stitcher. Pattern may be worked on different count fabric which will result in a different sized finished product.
