Thread Applique Pet portrait

I made this thread appliqué pet portrait of Bruno for my son’s 29th birthday. Bruno has captured the hearts of my son, Tristan and his fiancé, Erin.

The fur was a bit different from other animals I have done so it posed a bit of a challenge but I was pleased with the result.

I chose to paint the background in muted greys so as not to compete with that sweet little face.
