Oh Em Gee! He’s just the cutest. You can only imagine my squeal of delight when I opened the box and he was finished!!!! Too Stinkin’ cute! That’s all I have to say.
This is the Count by Tapestry Fair. He was a club, a mystery, a long term affair. Now he is available as canvases with stitchguide. You can stitch just his wings as I did or stitch his body too. He really is too stinkin’ cute and if you stay focused is a relatively quick stitch. He has rings on the back of his wings so he can fly like Peter Pan.
I worked all kinds of fun and different techniques into the panels of his wings. Not only did I use great threads and all sorts of stitches but there are embellishments galore and beads!!! You know I love beads so there are crystals and shaped beads and bits of brick beading and peyote beading. All kinds of coolness.
The edges of his wings are beautiful shibori ribbon. Shibori ribbon is pre-pleated hand dyed silk ribbon. YUMMY!
All in, it’s a fun project. If you would like to stitch the Count you can order the canvas with or without the body to stitch. He is much cuter with a stitched body but if you have my attention span…..
It’s never too early to start stitching for Halloween 🙂
