While I was searching the Hoop Love pool for a pattern, I came across this sea scene submitted by user bcampell_to: www.flickr.com/photos/briancampbell/5118571319/. When I showed it to my boyfriend, he thought it'd be funny to have the seagulls attack a picnic rather than a wave. Cue a few minutes search, when I found this pattern submitted by user rectangle: www.flickr.com/photos/rectangel/2314303997/
The major modifications include removing the car and bread from the picnic and the sea from the sea gulls. The picnic blanket is in back stitch, whereas the original called for running stitch. I added in some more grass to help cover the spot the car occupied and took out a few flowers and grass where they conflicted with the seagulls. I also only used three of the original five seagulls.
This is the first vintage pattern I've sewn, and it was quite fun! There is a lot of detached chain stitches in this piece, as well as a nod to me and my boyfriend (it's incredibly subtle.)
