Heres what Ive been working on (very on and off) for the last few weeks.  Its based on one of Sailor Jerry's designs.  Im considering putting my name on the banner and then making it into a purse.  However I dont have access to my sewing machine until July so it will have to wait to be completed.  Im quite proud of the french knot cloud, however they obscure a little bit of the detail and make it very hard to photograph.  My camera would have a clear shot and then when it focussed it would be blurry (so frustrating).  On with the pictures...

A bit of detail:

Overall (rather blurred)

Thanks for looking.

I don't know what a sailor jerry is, but this is amazing. It is hard to tell how big it is, but the detail must have taken forever. The colors go really well together.

There is a thin, semantic line separating weird and beautiful. And that line is covered in jellyfish. - Welcome to Night Vale

Fantastic job!
