Seis de Mayo

Meet "Pedro" - a pinata I sewed to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but I finished him the day after.
He's 5" tall and wide and adapted from a design featured on Feeling Stitchy by Mollie Johanson of Wild Olive. I enlarged and reversed the original drawing, using the neon bright Mettler Poly Sheen 40 wt. threads I found from the sewing room reorganization.  I still contend that the Viking Husqvarna 1100 makes the best and tweakable satin stitches (A 14-16).
