Halloween temari by vikingsoprano Halloween temari by vikingsoprano
I've been waiting to submit this until October. It's my Halloween ball! I found the perfect orange thread and thought silhouette work would be sufficiently spooky. The moon is the only "real" temari stitching on this one. There are (of course) 13 spokes in the moon. Materials: cotton machine sewing thread (background), cotton pearl #5 (ground), various metallics (moon), Very Velvet (tree), silk pearl #12 (bats). On the reverse side (not shown here; photos didn't turn out) are a couple twisty little houses also done in the velvet thread.
Edit - I submitted this guy to the Halloween contest sponsored by darkfantasy here: [link] and the contest sponsored by =xgnyc here: [link] and the contest sponsored by Ancient-Hoofbeats here: [link]

How cool is this! I got an honorable mention in darkfantasy's contest! Thanks! And congratulations to all the winners.

More coolness! I placed second in the Artisan Crafts category in xgnyc's contest! woot!

Wonderful, I'm making my first temari now and was looking for inspiration, came across this. I want to make a geeky one for my daughter for new year as I saw that was what they do in Japan (not the geeky bit).

Ohhh, I think this is a lovely work.

The detail is beautiful~ and the colors are just SPOT on. :floating:

I want to take him and put him by a window seat...with a big pumpkin for him to look out at. :heart:

And there's no such thing as "fake" techniques in my book. :heart: just "modern" techniques versus "classical" ones. :XD:

Oh lord, this must have been odd, not doing symmetrical stuffs.

Very cool, would like to see other side too. :)

vikingsoprano Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2010
Very odd, indeed. The lack of symmetry was jarring for me. I tried to take photos of the other side (to do a composite photo) but they didn't turn out - it's just not so compelling.

This one was actually pretty quick. I used much bigger threads than normal. They cover more area and take less time to do. Thanks for the comment!
