I have recently become obsessed with silhouettes. I had made a couple about five years ago, free hand of my dog and cat. I placed them in fancy gold frames, but no one ever seemed to get the joke. Oh well, I made my self laugh at least.
But today I was in need of some quick crafting and had been trying not to buy over priced silhouettes off eBay. So I decided to make these for my nieces.

Amelia loved them so much she had to make her own version.
