I can post this since it's well after Christmas, and I've already given this to my friend Marge for a present. I drew and used a small amount of watercolor in my sketchbook, then printed it onto printer fabric. After that, it was easy to sew most of the way around it, making sure the ribbon was in the seam. Stuffed it with pillow stuffing, then went around it with decorative machine stitching. Fun!
