Everybody wants a big ol' slice of a little pie

For Valentine's Day, I want to make my boyfriend an emroidery of one of his favorite pictures of our Hedgehog, Amiira. I need ideas of what to do with the embroidery after it's done though. I've thought of making it into a pillow, or a wall hanging, but I don't like the idea of a pillow and we aren't living in our own place and we can't put things on the walls (or let it look like we're living here at all) so it would probably end up forgotten somewhere for a long time if I made it to something to put on a wall. Is there anything else you can do with embroidery? I have done it on purses before, but he doesn't need any kind of a bag, and I can't really afford to make it into something bigger like a shirt or anything. Open to suggestions... Please help! And thanks in advance ^^

Here is the picture of her:




EDIT:

I've decided to replace the embroidery with Love Coupons! Here is a list of the coupons I'm giving him, we don't NEED any kind of sexual ones, as I'm given to be okay with whatever he feels like doing, so these are the ones I've come up with that I think he might appreciate and use. We laughed for days about all kinds of other suggestions, so this was a challenge for me to think of these:

   Sweets for my Sweetie: I will make or buy your craving ASAP when presented with this coupon.
   Ice Cream on Me: I will buy you ice cream.
   Movie and Popcorn: A movie out, all on me.
   GOOD Homemade Dinner: You must have an idea of what you want for dinner, but I will make everything except meat (Excluding sausage or bacon).
   Picnic Planned by me: When you present this coupon, I will plan out a picnic to be enjoyed wherever you wish.
   Chocolate Covered Fruit: Your choice of fruit, I will dip them all in fruit for you (excludes bigger fruit (such as watermelon) or fruits that wouldnt dip well (citrus fruits for example).
   Craft Made ASAP: Any feasible and not extremely complicated craft you want made ASAP.
   Dress me up: I will wear an outfit of your choice for up to a day (From dressing up to going to bed).
   Bonus: Your choice: Anything you can think of that Im being difficult with, go ahead and use this coupon for a realistic cooperation on my part.


The first one can be used as many times as he wants, at least until next Valentines when he will need to do something to "renew" his coupons. The rest are either 1 time uses or 3 time uses.

Also I made him a box. He will like it because of the scrapbook paper I covered it with, but he won't like it because it's in the shape of a heart. He likes old style maps. The other papers were just related.







And yes... the smaller hearts are supposed to look like pasties.

The love coupons are buried in there, as well as 2 tiny bottles of Irish Whiskey to go along with some gourmet hot chocolate I've yet to find.

I would wrap it gently and take it with you to a home where you can hang it.

Hmmm... The embroidery I am thinking will be about the size as the picture is. So it would probably be to big for those. For the wall hanging, I am making this for THIS V-day so I want it to be appreciate NOW not later... You know?

The have metal strips that hang over the top of a door and have a hook on one side.  Or you could get a magnet and glue a hook to it.  Or you could hang it on a door knob.  I've spent a LOT of time living in apartments...

I know it's kinda small, but my DH is an exterminator and he's received keyrings with bugs on them in the swaps I've been in.  Or, maybe you could make something for BF's car and put the embroidery on that?  Like a seatbelt cover, garbage bag, pillow for the car?

Good luck, and the photo is adorable!

I think I would make it into a Xmas tree ornament. Small enough to hang on a mirror or lampshade when it isn't Xmas.

I don't think it would be too big for a wallet, it would just cover the outside pretty much completely. Or what about a scarf? I've also seen a lot of people get those plastic drinking cups with the lids and straws that come apart so you can put photos in them, and they've put embroidery in those before. I think they make coffee mugs like that also. Last time I was at Starbuck's they even had a coffee tumbler that you could put your own pictures it that would most likely hold embroidery, too.  For that matter you could make a coaster, or set of coasters, or a mouse pad, too. Just some thoughts. Smiley

Or what about a cuddle bag for your hedgie? You could embroider the outside of it. Or make something to hang on the outside of hedgie's cage?

Thank you all for your help, but it turns out I'm not going to do the embroidery. However, thanks for all of the great ideas and I am sure to use some of them in the future, as I do continue to embroider occasionally. I decided to go with a different project because I managed to find some scrap booking paper that looks like old style maps... Which he loves. So I decided to decoupage a box. I feel bad! But like I said, I am sure to use some of these ideas in the future... Especially for the car! I am trying to make him so nice seat covers, working nights as a security guard, sitting in his freezing car that happens to have leather seats... ugh! But... Thanks again everyone!!!

We aren't renting, we are staying at his mothers place and she doesn't want us having anything that shows that we live here. She refuses to let him set up his garguatuan computer, regardless of the fact that he bought her a BRAND NEW computer for xmas -.- I understand though. My bf just makes messes everywhere and just leaves clothes lying around so she probably thinks anything we do is messy. Meh.

I think the cold medicine I am on is causing me to see things. I really, really thought you meant to hang the hedgehog herself on the wall.  Shocked
