doo_leroux- very awesome! love it!

i just finished gatsbygirl's pillow case.
her theme was about the X's 4th of July song, and this is what I imagined everytime I read the lyrics and listened to the song.


and here is the whole pillow case:


i just kept thinking of the stairs, and summertime sunsets, oh and that little piece sitting on the bottom step- thats an ashtray with a cigarette sitting in it... hope you like gatsbygirl!!

This is the first time I've stitched on a blank tea towel! Kitten Wrangler sent a beautifully hand-hemmed rectangle of linen and mentioned a variety of themes including "traditional Indonesian design" which immediately made me think of batik designs on hand dyed fabric. This design is loosely based off a batik fabric I saw at the fabric store. I heavily used running stitch for the fish details, taking advantage of the loose weave of the tea towel, and french knots all around the fish. Hope you like it!


(I asked my friend what does it look like and he said "pineapple fish" so I'm naming this my pineapple fish Smiley)

rita I love your design!  I've never seen the running stitch used more effectively and practically given the loose weave...those french knots must have been tricky on there Wink

the hem looks like some version of hardanger work.
