A Stitch In Time...

I made these little trains for Ms. Carolyn, "My Snowball Lady". I had made her a train card for her 1st grandchild & she loved it. Her 2nd grandchild (also a boy) is due in October. They are going with a train theme for her shower. So I made these trains for her to put on some glass jars with flowers in them as center pieces on the tables.
They also fit into the challenge this week on Papertake Weekly http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/ so I am entering it in that too.
Details:
I used CDS to cut only the train engine & to make sure the M's fit on the train right.
NA for the train & MM for the M
I used my Cutter Bee Piercing Bug (single) to mark the holes for the stitching.
White Gelly Roll pen for the stitching
LePlume II markers for inking & hole marks in the stitching
Brads for the center of the wheels.
Thanks for looking. Comments & questions welcomed.

This is adorable! I love how you used the cutter bee piercing bug to do the stitching. I always forget about mine, I need to put it right out where I can see it. Great job!
