There's a lot of work gone into that and the result is wonderful.

Great piece! I don't think I would have the patience to stitch an accordian! LOL.
The clown makeup freaks me out more than a little bit, but you captured it very well.

I planned to just do a closeup of his face but it didn't really do the whole look justice so I had to stitch the bloomin accordian. Glad I did now though! Sorry the makeup freaked you out :O

This is 16 kinds of awesome!

I should have a bumper sticker that says "I brake for accordions". I especially like how you didn't try to reduce the number of buttons. Bravo!

Very nice work!
