I made these for my partner @artsycandice in the Dinosaur Swap. She received a bit ago, but I was sick so I forgot to post up.
I had so much fun creating for this swap. Dinosaurs have so much potential. Anything can be made into one of these majestic beasts! I am still learning and having fun with embroidery, so my partner got a bunch of it.
I made her an embroidered neckalce of (what I think is a Brontosaurus. It can be interpreted into a couple of different dinosaurs, but that was my intent. A friend liked it so I whipped up a second one to squirrel away in a package for her later. I think they turned out neat.
Then I turned to my other new obsession, felt. I created a Triceratops brooch. I thought it was so sweet looking. Perhaps a tad too sweet because of the colors, but I would wear it, so I sent it. I only know how to do one flower, the rose, so that is what is around it. Originally, I wanted to do other flowers and leaves but got super intimidated.
I am having a lot of fun with embroidery and felt so hopefully I can create some more things. I plan to make some dinosaur stuff for myself too. It was too fun of a subject to stop creating based on it.
I love this! The juxtaposition of the dinosaurs with the old-fashion nature of the brooch is just perfect. You also did a wonderful job recreating the design! Sometimes doing a thing a second time is much harder.
I also have discovered a total love for tiny felt projects over the past year or so. The little triceratops pin is precious. The lines are clean and simple, and the little face really shines.
Ooh, these are SO CUTE! The pretty little flowers around the triceratops are just darling but I absolutely love the stiching on those pendants, especially the grass & branches. Note to self about how the direction of things seems to change & curve once hooped in that oval shape. Perfect framing, really lovely work.
