Thanks guys! I went out and got fabric this afternoon. I'm going to make an apple green bag with this sucker.
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Rainbow Puking Unicorn? Oh yes, I did. on: July 24, 2012 08:50:46 AM
So, a while ago (long long time ago) I saw this:
and decided I  *had* to do it. So, I found the reference picture and went for it.

Here you can see that I outlined the lines of the tail, but it was a waste of time. You couldn't really see them on the finished project.

I don't know why it's wrinkly, but this is the biggest embroidery I've ever done and my first non words one. It's about 7 in. tall and 6. wide.I used satin stitch for the rainbow, hooves, and horn, split stitch for the mane and tail, and back stitch for the outline. I changed a few things like the ears and eyes. I don't like how the nose or how the front right hoof turned out. If I were doing this again, I would change the way the tail is to more of a lion's tail which is how it's depicted in some medieval paintings/tapestries, and do it in grays. Otherwise, I like it! Think I may turn it into a bag. Thanks for looking, c+c encouraged.

I saw the thumb nail of this and I thought "oh, that's lovely! Maybe I can do something like that." But then I opened it, and immediately thought "Nope, not that talented." It's wonderful and you have a very lucky swap partner. What stitches did you use?

These are amazing! They look so fluffy and real! Great control over the medium, and I really look forward to seeing more work from you.

This is awesome. I too want to be a panda for Halloween. Do you think it would be possible to post a tutorial?

Thanks for posting the pattern/tutorial! As soon as I get ink in the printer, I'm going to make mine. How big is the little one you made?

Yum, cake! It looks wonderful, and when I first saw it I thought the border was supposed to be wonky, to add to it's charm. Well done.
