My BF's brother is an anime nut. More importantly, he is a Gundam nut. If you're not familiar with Gundam, it's from the Japanese genre that spawned our own pale version of giant robot drama known as Transformers. And when I say nut, I mean total and complete BANANA BREAD. With extra walnuts. I think he's spent over 2 gees on his action figures, and they take up wall-length shelves in his living room. O.o

So anywho, I wanted to make something special for him for giftmas, but I only just now matted and framed his very own embroidered FA-010-S (Full Armor ZZ Gundam):




The matting is silver-faced denim with mitred corners in a huge dollar-store frame. Sorry I don't have a better photo. He promptly went and hung it above his bed Tongue For those interested, you can see the references I used once he told me what his fave Gundam was:

My boyfriend is sitting next to me and would get such a kick out of this, but I'm afraid to show him because I could never make something that cool for him.

LOL, glad you think it's cool! It wasn't too hard, I just traced a line-art image onto the fabric with carbon paper. The hard part was how loooooooong it took Tongue I think you should go for it if you think your bf would really appreciate it Cheesy
