I posted this in the bag/purse thread, but because it's a bag made solely as a place to put this squid, I thought it was more about the embroidery and less about the bag. So, I'm posting it here too.



I embroidered this squid from a picture at http://science.howstuffworks.com/squid1.htm

It needed something more than a tea towel for it's final home.



Thanks for looking

Only a split stitch. It seems to look the nicest for me.

Thanks for the compliments. I'm glad you guys like it.
