I made these for an actress friend. We're both musical theatre geeks, and her favorite characters tend to be ambitious, difficult women. (And insane.)
I made her a napkin set featuring four of them. Using flowers for Violet and Rose made sense, so I thought I'd make it a theme.
Rose (Mama Rose, Gypsy)
Violet (Violet Chandler, The Fix)
Narcissus (Norma Desmond, Sunset Blvd)
Zinnia (Zelda Fitzgerald)
The first and second are cross-stitch; the other two were more embroidery. I used waste canvas for all four. My only regrets are that I should have done Rose's lettering in white, and I wasn't able to work in Sweeney Todd's Mrs. Lovett.
