Someone on here recently posted their cross stitch pics of the Scarecrow, Tinman, and Lion from an old Charles Craft booklet of Wizard of Oz patterns. I did the pic of Dorothy from this same booklet. The cross stitich pattern was taken from an old black and white still of the movie.

I stitched this for my brother a long time ago but I thought it was time to share it with the world.  Grin

Here's the long shot:



And here's the close up:



Photos by my brother who has a better camera than I do. Also, the background in real life is a light blue with a nifty sheen to the cloth. I think the cloth was Charles Craft too. I don't know if they even make it anymore.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thanks everyone. This took me about eighteen months, and that was when I was between jobs, so I'm pretty proud of it. Probably the biggest project I've finished to date.  Smiley

Hey there,
I was the one who cross stitched the Tinman along with the other characters.
Thank you for sharing your work! It's amazing, you did a great job.
It's nice to see the finished project, your brother is lucky to have such a gorgeous piece of your creativity!!
Fantastic!!

Much love to all who craft

Thanks so much! I was hoping you'd get to see this one since yours came out so beautifully and since I had really wanted to do the separate characters for him too, like the ones you did. But after Dorothy I kind of ran out of steam. My brother has a house full of Wizard of Oz collectables but I know he thinks this one is special since I made it for him. Smiley The only thing I changed, and I'm glad I did, was that they had this really weird orange color in her hair that clashed with everything, so I just chose the next lighter color.

I could understand why you would run out of steam Smiley
I love it, your work is amazing!!
I haven't framed mine yet, I have decided to do a gingham border to match Dorothy's dress. There is a blank spot in the middle of the characters, so I decided I'm going to embrioder "There's no place like home" in the middle. It will hang in our family room.
There is really no place like home is there!
Thanks again for sharing!

Much love

Oh, I do hope you'll post it when you do. That sounds awesome! There is no place like home, that's one of the great messages of the movie. Thanks for your comments.  Smiley
