Another hippo

Bijoux hippo
I went a little crazy a few months ago and cut out fabric for four hippos. In early January I finally finished the last of them--this one, which I call Bijoux hippo after the Heather Bailey fabric it's made of. When I was cutting and making these hippos, I saved this one for last because I thought it would be my favorite. And yet, now that it's done, I think I like this one the best. Huh.

Bijoux hippo eye
It might be because of the eyes? They look a little...surprised to me. I triple-stacked them, which may have been the problem? I think it's that white button that throws it off, but maybe that's just me.

Bijoux hippo side
Not sure what will happen with this guy. Right now he's just hanging out in the sewing room with repro hippo, possibly waiting for a good home?

The pattern is one I modified quite a bit; here's a link to my original post on these hippos:
