I made this for Sugary Sweet in the Coraline swap. It's the most ambitious embroidery I've ever done. Compared to the things other people do here, it's pretty basic, but I was really pleased with the results.
I sewed it into a bag I made of a soft blue chenille with (I thought) a cool batik fabric lining that reminded me of the tunnel Coraline goes down to the other world.
Hi guys- I AM away from a computer because I moved back to the states from Canada! I'm lurking around other people's computer until we get our internet sorted out here, so I can't promise how often I'll be around.
Sugary Sweet, the package hadn't arrived when I left, but I have a firend checking my mail and hopefully if it's still in transit it will get forwarded. That's probably the reason for the delay. Now I can't wait to get it because those pictures are SO COOL! I love the wall hanging. I have big plans for decorating this new place and I know just the place that it will go... And I know Olivia (kid I nanny for) will love the doll. She's too sad I moved, so it will be great pick me up present for her to get in the mail!
I babysit for two kids, age six and 3. They live in a beautiful house full of kid friendly spaces and yet they were always playing in the basement closet. It slopes under the stairs, had no drywall, a concrete floor and LOTS of spiders.
As a Christmas surprise, their parents asked me to help them redo the closet. Their dad put up drywall and laid down some carpet, and I painted the walls. Their mom finished it off with the ceiling fabric, glow in the dark stars, a chalkboard and some fairy party lights.
I love how it turned out!
Here are a few shots of what it looked like after the drywall went up:
