Stitched by hand old school sewing competition Red riding hood meets Evil-Treevil

For the competition over at: www.flickr.com/groups/863891@N23/

 

Red Riding hood and her bird meet Evil-Tree-vil in the forest

 

Category:

2D Beginner Contemporary (I did my first embroidery march 2008 so I still consider myself a 'beginner'), Original art, artist designed (Nicole)

I think I managed to combine the following themes:

Birds

Folk Art

Magic

Cute and Evil

Red

 

size approx 10 by 10 inches

 

After making some sketches and water colour pictures inspired by the competition themes, I made a rough sketch on the fabric but a lot of the details/colours were added as I went a long.

 

update: oh no, I didn't win :( but I think I came second in the public vote and there were lots of nice comments : )
