Not sure this is the right board, but it is embroidery so...
I loved both "The Last Unicorn" and the Carebear movies when I was little, so I got it into my head to make some fabric art/embroidery with those themes. Here's the result:


Also blogged about here: http://tidytipsy.wordpress.com/2010/01/11/stitch-therapy/
The colors in the second picture are a little too bright actually...sorry about that.
I used only very basic stitches, mainly back stitch and stem stitch.
I actually really like how they turned out  Grin

Thanks for looking!

These are very cool! You did a great job!

Last Unicorn is still one of my fav movies. Care Bears rocked too though.
