A 'Gator for Nana

My daughter, who is 12 and I were trying to find a paper piecing pattern that she could make into a small Mother's day card for her Nana.

We had just returned from visiting Nana in Florida. When we were there we had seen an alligator from her dock!

Afterwards, we went online to find an alligator pattern, and this one was perfect!

My daughter went through my stash of fabrics, found the perfect 'gator and water fabrics, and went to work.

We ended up adding button eyes and slipping it into a frame.

We think it turned out perfect for a special Mother's day surprise!
