This is the Giant SlowMo Tardigrade embroidered pillow I made to hang on the wall... The only reason it's not framed, hooplah'd or anything else is simply so that I could use more pom pom edging. The WHOLE reason for this was pom pom edging. After thinking about the edging for a long period of time I decided my nonsense of rewinding the movie "Ponyo" over and over again after watching a scary movie needed to be the thing that went with the turquoise colored pom poms. Tardigrades are "Commonly Known as 'Waterbears' or 'Moss Piglets'" as I decided to point out near the bottom. Tardigrades are small. This one is giant and falling in slow motion. If you watch the movie "Ponyo" carefully you might be able to pick up on my humor.





The Waterbear was done by embroidering through two pieces of fabric then cutting holes in the first layer, revealing the pattern of the second. I'm sure I saw this done somewhere on craftster but have no idea where... if I didn't then... well, I just wanted it this way? *snort* This piece is a long thought out IMPULSE.



POM POMS.

I want it to look like a dictionary phrase on the bottom and graffiti on top.



I did quite a lot of intricate blackwork inside the lettering in patches.

Oooone more picture of it hanging on my wall:

Now that's obscure!  Great job giving the tardigrade some love.  Smiley  He looks nice and fat.
