2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / embroidered wedding canopy on: September 13, 2007 10:05:33 PM
I spent all summer embroidering a chuppah (wedding canopy) that I was commissioned to make. It is about 5ft x 6ft and I embroidered the border about 8 inches deep.  The design is based of the couple's invitations.  I had never done anything this large before and didn't have a whole lot of time to do it, but I did finish!  It was pretty intense near the end though, I spent an entire weekend doing nothing else and my hands started to cramp up...actually they still kind of hurt.  Is it lame to have an embroidering injury....??

all folded up:

folded in half (the two long sides have the more intricate design, while the two shorter sides are slightly less intricate):

they were cloth place mats, hand embroidered, and the bumpy material was surprisingly easy to deal with...not much different than other material i thought...

from a too big camisole and part of a tiered skirt that looked too much like a costume:

thanks again, everybody...the coat is made from cotton- its pretty lightweight and I embroidered with 1-3 strands of thread...less for smaller facial features and more for other parts...

The people are copied from all sorts of things- album covers (ex. gram parsons), book covers (that's sister carrie at the bottom, Oedipa Maas is on there, although not clearly in the picture) and images a found in newspapers/magazines.  Also some are copied from photos of my friends/family.  There is also a werewolf and an elephant.  I think of it as a psychedelic dance party...
