Project Name: N is for Narwhal!
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=437767.0
Brief Description: N is for Narwhal is actually an inside joke in our family. When we were having a discussion about narwhals, Jeremy said they were mythical creatures. He would not believe me when I told him they were real until I showed him actual pictures of them. There's no way we COULDN'T include them on our mythical creature wall for baby Charlotte.

This fits the prompt because Narwhals live in the frigid Arctic waters of the north. Smiley

Embroidery 3/26 done in my A is for... Mythical Creatures Alphabet series for baby Charlotte's wall! (which also means 4/50 total for the year so far)

This one has a bit of a back story. N is for Narwhal!

I am making a set of mythical creature embroidery hoops for my baby girl's wall (all on gray chevron fabric, with green and purple accents).

I still need to add his button eye (I like adding 3D elements to my embroidery hoops), but I need to pick some up from the store.





3 down, 23 to go!!

AugustBell OMG THAT IS SO COOL! I've never heard of a needle minder before, but I think I might need one now! With an 10-month-old and a puppy in the house, I really can't afford to lose needles!

Project Name: D is for Dragon Embroidery
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=437708.0
Brief Description: What's warmer than a dragon? The next in my "A is for... B is for..." embroidery hoop series for my baby girl's bedroom wall. This one has some 3D elements. I didn't fully tack down the smoke coming out of his nostrils, the wing, or the spikes on his back, so that they add just a little bit of a 3D effect.

Thanks everyone! I had my little girl early last year (can't believe she's almost a year already!!), so I didn't do hardly any crafting at all. I've been working on these little guys after she falls asleep at night (getting anything done with her awake is impossible because she wants to "help").

elliot_anne - That steampunk seahorse is sooooo cool!!  Are you planning on doing anything else with the same design?  The black is very striking against your cool hand-made background, but I'd love to see it in color as well! Smiley  The zombear is also adorable!!  I agree with everyone that the real stuffing is a super cute touch. Smiley 

Yea, I want to make a bunch of these with different carousel animals. Urban Threads has a ton of them, and I'd love to do a bunch. I want them all to have relevant stamped backgrounds. I debated satin stitching them in bronze and gold and silver, but I know I would get burnt out quick, seeing how many I want to do... I think I'm going to stitch them all in black thread, but the stamps might be different colors (like, the dragon might have red stamped images, and the lion might have orange).

Project Name: Zombear Embroidery
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=437704.0
Brief Description: Zombies definitely fit the bill for me! Every time I watch anything with zombies in it (even movies like Shaun of the Dead that are supposed to be funny), I have TERRIBLE nightmares for weeks afterward. However, I still wanted him kind of cute and cuddly because he is going on the wall in my baby's room, so I decided to change his brains and ribs showing to stuffing popping out instead. He does have actual stuffing coming out, and also a real button for an eye.

Here are my first 2 projects of the year! (Sorry they're tipped over. Don't know why they're doing that or how to make them sit up straight...) I love embroidery (well, anything involving DMC floss, really), but I also like to add a little something special to my pieces - 3D elements, preparing my own fabric, or drawing my own designs. I like to make each one unique somehow.

Both of these designs are from Urban Threads, but I did things to them to make them one of a kind pieces.

Carousel Steampunk Seahorse Embroidery



For this one, I hand carved the sail boat and anchor stamps and then used fabric paint to make the fabric print you see, then embroidered the seahorse on top.

Zombear Embroidery



This little guy has actual stuffing coming out of the holes in his head and side. Also, his eye is a real button that I sewed on.
