Mr and Mrs Deer - a new sewing and embroidery pattern

I hope you are all keeping cosy (or at least those in the cold climes).. Scotland seems to be missing winter this year which is sightly unnerving. It's been rain , rain and some more rain. 
Still, it's been the perfect weather to be working on a fun wee project. I actually made the first prototypes 2 summers ago (when there was more rain!), which just shows how long it can be before some ideas come to fruition.
Anyhow, let me introduce you to Mr and Mrs Deer.... a right pair of love birds deer! The pdf pattern is now available as an instant download, so you can make your very own here.
The 'naked version'

They've been designed so that you can get a little creative with them, and change up the details you want to add. 
Instructions are given on making both deer heads (different templates are used for Mrs Doe and Mr Deer as there are slight differences....Mr Deer has a wider brow because he's so manly. Grrr!) 
There are templates and instructions for adding doe spots, stitched fur, embroidered flowers, dahlia and rose corsages plus a bow/tie.You can also opt for leaving the mini heads as they are ----------> 

Or opt for adding a decorative backplate.

I think they'd look great in any kids bedroom or nursery. I also think they'd make the perfect little gift for a wedding , or for valentines... don't you agree? Great thing is you and mix and match to suit the special loved up couple, be it Mr and Mrs, Mrs and Mrs or Mr and Mr.

I'm working on a kit version for these...always take much longer to create and I was too impatient to wait and share!
Here's to love :)x
