Finally stitched out my froggy bean bag. Pictures are taken using a cheap and an expensive camera, gave quite different colours. The truth is about half way.

This fits a 200x360 mm hoop - roughly some 8"x 14".
Digitising it was easy; fitting the front and back together was not (I'll work on that); turning and stuffing was fiddly.
I wanted it washable so I used bits of quilt batting.

This is wonderful! I thought of hightechgrammy's Ben when I first saw him. He would have loved this.
Makes me wish for a bigger emb field ....again

A large hoop is a great thing to have, it is a pity as a rule it comes with the top end machines - expensive, heavy and needing a lot of space.
I have been trying to come up with a 5x7 solution, but that means doing the legs separately to get a manageable size - turning and stuffing is fiddly enough as it is for the larger one. And it also means more separate hoopings for what is essentially a simple project.

Great job !! My daughter had one of these when she was little and it was stuffed with bird seed or white rice. She loved this frog!

I thought about rice as that would make it very pliable, but I wanted it washable.

Well he seems to be pretty perfect to me. I love his eyes Martine, you've captured his stance well too in all the poses! Great job, it's not easy stuffing little critters. Love Chris

Thank you. it let itself be placed rather easily in all sorts of poses. The trick is not overstuffing I guess.

there's a small opening for turning and filling that I closed by hand (ladderstitch). Rest is done in the hoop.

I love the poses you put this cute little frog in, just adorable. Looks cuddly and I could also see him flying across the room. Wish I could break some bad habits and get back to the joy of sewing. He'd be on my list.

Martine, he/she is fantastic!! I know what you mean about the fiddly stuff though, I have a tough time, even with tools, turning stuff right side out and stuffing things...….you did a terrific job with this little creature!
