My partner in the diptych round of the Hoopla swap likes sea creatures so I knew just what to make for her Smiley. My favorite deep sea critter... an angler fish!

I used wool felt, embroidery floss, batik fabric and an LED light to make this project.







Here it is all lit up. It's hard to see here but I used glow-in-the-dark thread for the white bits.


And here is a picture of the back where you can see the switch for the light. It really was easier than I thought it would be to put this together. I did have plenty of help from Mr. Lime and some nice gentlemen at the model train store Smiley.

I pushed the light through felt on the outside and cardboard on the backside to stabalize it. A wire is attached to the positive leg of the light and then that gets attached to the positive side of a battery (looks like a big watch battery). The other leg (the shorter one) also gets a wire attached and that goes to the switch and then to the battery. And that's pretty much it! All in very technical terms Smiley.



Thanks for looking! Let me know if you have any questions Smiley.

Omg! I love that you have this in two pieces. That little LED light really makes it though.

OOOH! What fun! The subject/arrangement gave me a little thrill of enjoyment, and when I got past that, I could see the amazing dimensional work and stitchery. Wow!

I love the way the hoops are turning into diptychs and triptychs!

ETA: I didn't see it was you, LimeRiot, until after I posted that. It doesn't take away anything from the awesomeness of it all, but I just said to myself, "Well, of course!" You rock!
