I made this for my friends as a housewarming present, They actually played the song from the film as part of their wedding, so it's very fitting.
I loved putting the whole design together, and picking different fonts and colours.
I forgot to take a picture of it after it was framed, sorry about the (once again) un ironed photos, but it looked much better framed, I promise!



A close up on the dolphin, I used the metallic thread on the waves, and also on the little fish at the top. It's a nightmare to work with!


Thanks for looking!

Thanks, I loved it too! its a retro DMC pattern font from 1982 that I found online somewhere, I think on a stitching blog. I actually enlarged it as the main letters were only one stitch wide, and the shadow was only two stitches long, and it wasn't big enough for what I needed.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I don't know a hoopy frood who wouldn't love to hang that in his house! Your design for this is great. Everything fits together perfectly, and I love the fonts.

oh! Love it. The fonts you used are brilliant. I think your friends are pretty cool that they used a song from the film in their wedding. That's too funny. Those are some lucky friends to receive this!
