Fun Springy Applique

Yes, the only time I could get a decent smile--drool and all--was in the bathroom... The bathroom is a magical place.  Something about lifting the toilet seat and tearing off the toilet paper.  

I admit that I have been having a lot of fun with appliques lately.  When I was thinking of something springy for a boy, all I could think of was frogs (Girls get butterflies, boys get... frogs, right?). So this is what I came up with:
I used mostly scraps.  Don't you love the tongue?!  I cut out a circle for the frog's tummy and an "eight" shape for the eyes.  I double-layered the eyes with black polk-a-dot fabric.  Don't the polk-a-dots look like eyeballs?? 

Here's my handsome little guy wearing it...

I used the same pattern when creating my Five Green & Speckled Frogs.  I made this pattern in Photoshop. You can download my frog patternhere. If you use it to create anything, I would love a link!!  I want to see what you creative people come up with.  

Happy Friday, my friends!  Enjoy your weekend.  I have big plans that involve my quiet book and catching up on some sleep!
