A friend of mine saw my Varmint Voodoo: Sharktopus Edition and commissioned this Sharktopus pillow cover!  YEY!



Printed directly onto unbleached muslin using the freezer paper method and with the trademark red bead and sequin eye!



A detail of the "frame":



The backside; it's an envelope style closure with one button.



It's surprisingly difficult to find a cotton novelty print that evokes the look of an oceanic blood massacre.  Huh.



The edge trim bit is... wait for it... reflective tape!  You can see a bit of the effect with the flash in this shot. This was a last-minute inspiration and it makes me almost (but not quite) glad that I can't for the life of me find that grey bias binding I made awhile back. 



Thanks for looking and STAY SAFE!

Thanks!  Yup, it's that little detail that takes all the Varmint Voodoo and this over the edge to just-right.

Thanks!  I bet I would not like it on my bed, though... too much nightmare potential.  Smiley
