I think I've got it at last !! I didn't use any adhesive backing, hooped the fabric and cut away stabiliser together, floated another piece of tear away underneath, and although I can see a tiny pucker, I've decided that a blind man would love to see it, and to give up the struggle ! Many thanks to everyone for your help.

an older lady that taught me to quilt would say can a man galloping by on a horse see it? I can't see a pucker at all and i am sitting still. You are fine and it looks adorable. For some reason that fabric looks exactly right for him.

There's a skent and dent store near where we live and their advertisement is a little old lady old lady that asks where's the dent? So...where's the pucker? LOL!!!

I sincerely want to get this right. so there is no backing just the fabric, I sometimes use a iron on backing, maybe I shouldn't, then you cut out the hippo with iron on backing? and floated tear away under the hoop? thank you Toni lee

I think you are being too hard on yourself. You have done a great job with the little hippo

This is so cute. If you did not mention the tiny pucker I would never have thought to look for it. I with the blind man because I can not see it. I love the design. Thank you for sharing it.
