Grin omg that's beautiful!! i love the detail in the background and the giraffe is amazing!!!!

what materials did you use to embroider on?? and how big is the piece?

this so rocks!
Thanks alot! I started with a piece of the red vinyl, embroidered the giraffe on there, then I sewed some dark blue felt on behind the vinyl, and then cut the vinyl out. Then the cloud cut outs were light blue fleece, and the border was blue ribbon. I found a self stick board for needlework, and stuck it on there. It is 14" long and 10 1/2" wide.
