For the recent Disney Swap, I was crafting for the wonderful Amigurl55. One of her themes that she listed was the Tiki Room. In my initial research I found a wonderful Tiki Room image here that was just begging to be embroidered!

I picked up an 8" embroidery hoop, cut up the image & re-arranged it to fit the hoop & this is what I came up with! Cheesy


The flowers & baskets are satin & stem/lining stitch.


And I really wanted to make the birds have a feathered texture, so they are long & short stitch, but I changed the lengths of the stitches so that when they would have longer feathers, the stitches are longer & shorter stitches for short feathers.


I was trying to work mostly out of my stash, so I ended up taking some scrap fabric I had that I loved the pattern, but not the tone, & tinted it using some watercolour. Here's an image of the pre- & post-watercolouring fabric.


I was very happy to make this for Amigurl, & I hope you all like it, as well! Cheesy C&C always welcome! Smiley

I happen to be the lucky new owner of this hoop, and I LOVE it!  It's right smack in the middle of all my hooplas on my hoopla wall.

I'm in awe of your talent and creativity.  Now I have the push I needed to finally learn embroidery.  I'm so glad your swap parnter loves it.

I love the Enchanted Tiki Room and I think you captured it perfectly! The fabric and colors you chose fit the style so well. And the detail shots are just beautiful!

Oh dear me! I love this hoop! Immediately made me think of my sweetheart who is a super crazy vintage Disney fanboy (a 6'5'' burly man, but a fanboy nonetheless...) lol He would so appreciate this as The Tiki Room is very near and dear to his heart.

I absolutely adore the colors and the stitching! Go you!

wow this is so cool! When I first looked at the original and your work I was impressed you found a fabric that looked so close to the original image...then I was even more impressed that you manipulated the fabric you had on hand! Great job and so cute, now I want one too!
