A guy told my boyfriend this one day when he was at work.  It's very true, wouldn't you say?  I stitched it up for a friend of ours. Hope he likes it.


I wish I would have done the fill stitches a little different, the wires of the fan seem to get lost.


I mounted it onto foam-core using the awesome tutorial on here!  Thanks Muddlepud!


As always, questions, comments and rude remarks are welcomed and appreciated.
Thanks for looking have a creative day!

Definitely true. This is great - I wish I could have it on my desk. I really like the fill stitches. I think the whole thing is perfect.

Beautiful stitches!  And a true statement, too.  Your best bet is to stand behind the fan.  Wink

Pretty awesome.

Regarding your comment on the fill stitches and the wire getting lost: I think it looks fine. I certainly knew what I was looking at and think it came out great!!!
