This was my first beaded or embroidered anything and with the advice of kittykill (thank you so much!!), I think it turned out A-okay!   Grin

I didn't make the pillow it self.  Smiley

This is wonderful!! I like it very much...

A few weeks ago I visited a Frank Lloyd Wright house and in it they had reproducitons of the kind of embroidery that was in houses at the time. I was incredibly inspired by some of it but my favorite was a pillow of a spider and web and blossoms.  == What I like here is your spider - the web glistens with dew but the spider is wonderful - I think I am going to have to make a spider pillow!!

Aww!!  You guys!  What great comments *blush!*

Please tell me how you do it!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!

Oh...there isn't much to tell!  As far as the beading, I lightly drew out the web design, sat down with a pile o' beads & went to town for a few hours in front of the TV Wink  I strung three & made a stitch, 3 more & stitch, over and over and over.   Cheesy  I'm sure it would be best to do a single bead at a time, but in this case it gave the web a jagged look that suited it well!  Smiley

The spider is a bit more to explain, but I've seen tutorials for them on Craftster before and there's no sense in me creating a good, solid wheel!   Grin  I searched "beaded spider" and found this one for ya... 
Not exactly how I did mine, but it'll do!  Smiley  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=111418.0
This one is almost exactly the same as what I did! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=111418.0

Thanks so much! Smiley  I realy didn't "mark" it exactly.  I just used a regular pencil & drew out the lines...but not to actually draw the lines, just to make faint indentations in the nap of the fabric.  I went against the nap, so it "roughed" it up a bit & made temporary lines for me to follow.

Thank you so much.  Smiley  I really liked how it turned out...I'd never done anything like it, so I'm giddy over it.  Of course... then I had to give it away.  lol.  I did it as a swap angel for someone.

Love that the spider swings free. At my house I'd have to keep extras for when they got knocked off. Ahhhh, I hate mending.

Aw...thanks guys Smiley  The dangly part is my favorite...just gives it a little more character, I guess.  Smiley

I have the spider web as a diagram if anyone wants it?  It's probably not a big deal to draw, but I did it on the computer first, so I do have it electronic if it helps.  Wink

This is really cool - and timely, with Halloween around the corner. Of course, who needs the excuse anyway.

I agree with everyone else, the dangling spider really makes it.

Please post the pattern if you can!  Cheesy

Here's a good tutorial for beaded spiders.  Mine aren't exactly the same, but with only a few modifications they could be.  Smiley  So sense in recreating a perfect wheel!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=111418.0

Oh Wow! How did I miss this! I love it. And I love spiders eventhough they do scare me a bit. If I find them in the house running around on the floor, I'll scoop them into a little box and take them outside. I do not kill them.

I love the fact that the spider can hang free that's a great idea. Also having the web from only one corner looks more realistic. Great work.
