I have been working on this off and on forever as a gift for a friend and finally finished it! I have always been sort of amused by the stripped down nature of instructional icons and when I saw this one on the Neti Pot box, I knew it had to be crafted. I used chain stitch for most of it, except for the more detailed parts like the facial features.





Why do I suck at ironing?

You're right, it did have to be crafted!  Grin

When I saw the little icon I knew it was a neti pot and I wanted to see what was going on. It's a great design for embroidery. Nice work  Grin

I want it. Our whole family uses the Neti Pot and loves it. I gotta show this to man & son.

Glad to see I wasn't wrong. Awesome stuff.

Thanks for the kind words! I have only used the neti pot a couple of times, but it is pretty amazing. This piece was a gift for a friend who introduced it to us by demonstrating it at a party. That's right... I go to some pretty wild parties Wink

ha ha, i love those type of drawings too! like the one of a baby throwing a blow dryer into a tub or the toaster perched precariously  above a sink of water- line through them of course, since these are situations we're being instructed to avoid. hilarious, keep up the good work!

I truly never thought I'd see a neti pot embroidery. This is awesome and made me laugh so hard.
