This was my favorite forbidden phrase while begging for candy as a kid (and maybe a little now too). I began designing this pattern with the phrase and then began to think of funny feet, which would be tiny legs with bulbous feet.
Then I got out a special fabric I had been saving for a special occasion, Eek! Linen from Picture this Plus. The colors were then chosen to match the fabric. I finished the piece by painting some raw wood black, lining the piece with some orangish pom poms I got from Stampin’ Up on closeout, and decorated with a 1” black grosgrain ribbon with a black swirly star from Just Another Button Company.
