I made this for the deelightful Deee in the Embroidery Hoopla Tiny Edition swap.

Stumpwork tentacle patterns are not common, so I designed this one from scratch. It was so much fun to put together. Cheesy









The tentacle is stitched on red silk dupion using a little organza applique, rayon and cotton threads. Split stitch filling, spider web, and colonial knots, wired and padded. It's quite small, the hoop is only 3 inches (or 4? can't recall exactly). I think Dee really likes it, and I certainly enjoyed making it.

I'm plotting what to stitch in 3D next. Your comments are welcome. Smiley
