Seaside fun


I've been hanging my Jack o'Lantern fob on my lunchbag at work and had 2 requests for a "hanging item." Work ends with this Friday, so it's about time I get cracking. Request #1 was for a seahorse, and it took me quite a while to find one.


This is a seahorse in Joan Elliot's Sea Goddess. I only had two of the required colours but improvised. I also found a button that I thought would go well.

Start date August 22, 2010
Finish date August 22, 2010
Fabric 28ct antique white lugana
Total time 2 hours

Post assembly it ended up being quite quite tiny, so I'm not sure if I should go ahead and give it, or stitch one of the other bigger seahorses.



The second request is for a Christmas tree, and I have to go hunting for that one now.

It's lovely! I would give it. Tiny things are always appreciated.

Tinyness and cuteness are directly proportional in my book; go ahead and gift it. :D

I think the fact that it's small makes it even cuter, and ideal for hanging on a bag

Even though it is small, it is beautiful! I think anyone would love to have it!
