rhinoceros for baby


i stopped everything today to make a gift for tomorrow. i figure, who wouldn't love a rhinoceros? so i embroidered one on linen in variegated red (which looks orange here but it's not)and made some little pom-pom stripes with variegated blue, lined it with cream flannel and frayed the edges of both layers. i was inspired by this red rhinoceros and of course i am always insired by lalannes and their rhinoceros(es?). this blanket is too big to show the whole thing but the other side has a few blue pom-pom stripes but no rhinoceros. i am no skilled embroiderer and i am not a seamstress but i thought it would be cute....and different. i hope she likes it.

Adorable! I wish I were as talented as you. Who doesn't love a rhino indeed? When I was 5 and living in Africa I got to sit on a rhino's back - it was rather terrifying and fun. We must keep on protecting those big animals.

that's funny, pve:)
The blanket was a hit! The recipient did, indeed, love it! What a lucky little baby! (I'm telling you this because Amy is TOO humble)

You can do this stuff! Unbelievable! Who wouldn't love that blanket? You've quite the talent. I'm still struggling with making a consistently good cup of coffee, let alone anything vaguely artistic.

Thanks for dropping by my blog!
