Table Decoration - Flycatcher

Originally meant to be Rocky from my Siesta Setting, I soon realized that the color of the fabric was way to bright to work for him. For a long time I felt very unhappy with this sick looking little frog, because no matter what I did, it just wouldn't look anywhere close to what I had in mind. In the beginning he still had the crazed "Rocky see's a fly"-look, but it simply wouldn't work, so I discarded the whole idea and enlarged the pupils instead.
79 spots, "eyeliners" and a hand wash later he ended up OK. After adding the fly (was fun to make) I think he looks nice, but definitely not a Rocky. I really need to figure out if I can dye that fabric for feature projects. o.O''

This is part of a dining set I've been working on over the past weeks during my stay at my parents place. They are meant as a Christmas gift to my boyfriend's family, who are a lot into cooking and have invited us over many times to share nice and unusual dishes.

The set contains a total of seven pieces, most of them being plain waterlilies. But, as is often the case with me, I couldn't resist to add a personal twist to a few of them... ;3

Materials: plush, cotton fabric, fake leather, semi transparent plastic. All details were embroidered by hand.
