Sweet and absolutely stellar mola! A beautifully hand stitched, one of a kind appliqued mola squirrel with great attention to detail!

Check out that brown nut she is holding... and that bushy tail.. perfect for hanging around! Enjoy as a decorative pillow.. hanging on a rail.. on a crib or just hanging out on a bookshelf. I have a similar one right above my computer. I adore mine!

The mola applique and stitchery.. along with the colors are just fabulous. So well executed. A textural and very tactile treasure!
