Thank you!!  I sent her a PM last month before posting it in my news feed, what are you gonna do.  I know my photography is not the best and it probably didn't go with her color scheme.  It was a fun challenge to do anyway!  It's all about the process, not the sale, right?  Wink
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Lions & Monkeys & Crabs, OH MY! on: March 04, 2011 06:57:26 AM
One of my Facebook friends saw my beach houses and suggested that she would like to buy a lion/monkey themed wall hanging for her son's room if I would make one.  She did the lion theme because he was supposed to be a Leo, but was born early and turned out to be a Cancer, so it was my idea to add the crab.  I guess she didn't like it though, because I never heard from her after posting it!  So I guess I now have more inventory for that craft show I may do someday.  At any rate, it was a lot of fun to make; I never thought it would actually turn out the way I imagined it in my head but it's pretty close!

Everything was loosely held together with light fusible web and then hand-stitched; mostly simple straight stitches because the design is so busy I thought fancy stitches would get lost!  The monkey & lion are felt (monkey shape is from a cookie cutter but the lion was freehand), and the crab is crushed velvet so nice & bright with black beads for eyes.  The grass, tree trunks, and river are pieces of old t-shirts, with a little acrylic paint on the river.  The leaves on the trees are from silk flowers, and the background is just a fabric remnant.  I backed it with green fleece and there's a piece of cardboard inside so it won't lose shape when hanging on the wall.  It's about 13" x 9" completed.

Great job!  The colors look just gorgeous, but I think the jellyfish tentacles are my favorite part.  So cool!!

Very very cool!  I love it!  I am such a messenger bag whore, I swear I must buy one every time I leave the house.  If I had the talent to make a proper one like that, I wouldn't have to!
