just finished this for the BF's anniversary...
he is a very proud trumpet player and a bit of a geek who loves pirates (I swear, he's not a kid  Roll Eyes ) so I hope he will like this (in fact he MUST cause I just spent so much time on this...  Grin
I painted the shadows on the trumpets but stitched every shape anyway...
I put fleece in the skull to give it more shape

just playing around...

some progress shots...

the design is not mine, I found this image on www.zazzle.be

I kept it more simple, in fact I didn't wanna ruin it while adding the black and yellow lines, but i'm still hesitating whether or not to add the keys and notes....(machine embroidery, appliqu, paint...?)

what do you guys think?

thanks for reading  Smiley

That's awesome! 

I'd say leave it as is.  The simplicity makes it look badass :p; adding music notes to it would turn it into the bad kind of cute, if that makes sense?

I agree with Hildegard, it looks better, and more masculine, the shape it is. It's attractive as a very 'strong' design, and fluffy details would detract from it

Working a sewing machine is harder to than driving a JCB. No, really.

I  think it looks amazing, really pretty(and by that I mean how nice it's made) and cool. Unless he is a child who wanted a car or something like that then I'm sure he will love it, especially since you made it Cheesy

I Love it! and I'm positive he will to Smiley
I agree with the others, keep it as it is, I don't think you need the notes, great job Smiley

I must admit I'm relieved, I totally agree with you so this means I'm done with this project  Grin  (and that it's time think about aaaaaall the other christmas presents waiting on my list.... sigh...)
