When I saw this pattern by Badbird, I had to have it. I think its super awesome. I stitched this off and on for about a month, and due to a new england vacation accompanied by very persistent rain... I finally finished it!

I want to display in a neat way, but I haven't been able to think of anything..... any suggestions?!





Thanks!

Something I've always wanted to do is make a fabric box lantern type of light. Perhaps if you make 2 (for a triangle) or 3 more panels, you could do this?

Of course, I always imagined mine to be a hanging version using straight branches from a tree, sewing the fabric to the branches, having some type of sturdying struts inside, and using one of those globe paper lantern lights inside that you could probably find at walmart or target.

Hope I helped!  Or at least got the juices flowing.  Grin

If I was a bed, I would stay unmade.

this is simply stunning.  i second the framing of it.  it would look so beautiful hanging on a wall.  gorgeous.

or you could stitch it on to the back of a hoodie for a completely unique and wearable piece of art.
