Praying Mantis

I completed this pillow for my cousin's graduation last week. She wanted either a Praying Mantis, a Walking Stick, or a Dragon Fly. I thought the Praying Mantis has the most personality.

I've had my eye on this Amy Butler fabric for quite some time. It's from the Forest series, and when I finally got around to buying it, it was practically unfindable. I think I got the last yard or so in existence!

Here's a side view:

The other fabric is from the Peas and Carrots series. I like it because it manages to be really playful and cartoony without being too childlike.
