Default New felt clip....opinions please!

Here is a couple of pics of a new felt clippie that I worked on this afternoon. My dear critic, aka DH, is not fond of it at all. Do you think that it will sell at shows??

The red bow on the elephant is sewn on.

We have a show this Saturday...so, I am wondering if I should spend some time & make some up??!!

What do you ladies think??

My personal thoughts are I really love the elephant and giraffe, I'm not feeling the other 2 . Maybe if you put some googly eyes on the monkey and the lion it would help. something to show their faces.... JMO.

Had to add that I think they would be good to sell at your craft show.

I agree.I think if we saw a face that would help make it more realistic. Very cute and good luck at your show.

Very cute! I agree about the eyes. I have the same dies. My only concern would be about the really thin parts that stick out from the monkey - I did some leaves with vines, and the stems fell off very easily. And I used a wool blend.

I agree with the "something" to show their faces a bit more. Also, they look really thin. Could you maybe sew two together?? That way its thicker, and you have the added look of the stitching...?? Not sure if that would work or not, just a thought. HTH! They are cute though. Love the little bows.

I like the idea of stitching a couple layers together - maybe if you stitched around the animals with a little decorative stitching it might give them some more definition. You could also just use the same thread for the eyes if you don't want to use the googly eyes. Really cute idea - I love the bows on them! I just bought a cuttlebug machine the other week and am dying to use it .

I definately like the elephant and giraffe, but also agree that there needs to be a little bit more. You could even sew some beads on for the eyes, if you didn't want to stich them or add googly eyes. I like the monkey and the lion too but they don't stand out. They would be better with a little more demension.

when adding stitches to felt bows what type thread do you use? Do you use like cross-stitch floss (I don't even know if that the write word/term) do you know what I mean? Cause they always look like they are down with a thicker thread/more threads and it looks really good that way.
