Here is my sister's christmas gift!  It's a portrait of Madeline Kahn from the movie Clue...she plays Mrs. White and her weapon is the rope.  If anyone can pick out another symbol from the movie that I've incorporated (from dialogue) you are the BEST!



here's a wider shot:



and lastly:



I should post the pic I used for the portrait:



I traced the section I wanted using carbon paper onto plain white cotton fabric.  The rest I drew using free-hand, and embroidered with whatever stitches I could think of...hehe.

Mrs. White has always been our favourite (we grew up watching the film).  Please let me know what you think!  Merry Christmas!!!

That is way cool! Your workmanship and attention to detail is very impressive.

I haven't seen Clue for years, but damn it was funny. My love for Tim Curry knows no bounds. Cheesy Too bad the delightful Ms Kahn is no longer with us.  Cry

Whoa. I saw the thumbnail and thought, "Is that... Mrs. White?" That's pretty awesome.

I must have watched that movie 200 times growing up. It's still one of my favorites. My sisters and I still quote it.

Wow, very impressive embroidery! I've only seen Clue once, and it was forever ago.. but I think I may have to relocate it!

OMG I love this !!!!!
My sister is majorly obsessed with the movie and game Clue. In fact she has an entire Clue themed living room and has bought two of each game version that she can find. We shadow boxed them last year and she has them hanging everywhere, she also has game boards hanging up. Her husband recently started buying her all the game boards from all over the world. They are super cool.

This is amazing and Madeline Kahn is her favorite character. I can't show her this post or I will be making this for her next !!!! You did a great job! It looks wonderful!!!!

AMAZING JOB!

I loved this movie, then my high school did the play and I was in it, so the love grew more. i wanted to be mrs. white but ended up being a female Mr. body.....it was my first time in a play so can't really blame them for making me dead through out half the thing...haha
