Just mailed these out today so time to show them off while I have a minute.
The Disney patch swap is winding down. This is the second to the last round.
T, U, and V!
T is for Timon.
I knew from the very beginning of this swap series that T would be Timon. I did him with crayon tinting and embroidery.
U is for Under the Sea. Yes, that earworm of a song from The Little Mermaid. I thought about doing Ursula the sea witch but that would have meant another crayon tinted patch (most likely) and I wasn't into doing a full set of crayon tinted patches. The fish on the right has a bit of a derpy Flounder face, too, so it worked well. I used ric rac and some eyelash yarn to make the seaweed. The background fabric is this great hand dyed (or maybe it just really looks hand dyed) fabric I got in one of my many scrap pack purchases.
V is for Violet (from The Incredibles).
I hemmed and hawed on this patch. At first I was thinking I'd do a generic "villains" patch with some representational images of different villains. I was going to try and avoid any villains I already did, so I was thinking about having an eye with a scar over it (Scar), some tentacles (Ursula), or maybe some wild hair (Hades). But it just wasn't working for me so I went with the "easier" choice of Violet.
She's crayon tinted (no embroidery) and I put a piece of plastic over the top of the patch to make it look like she's putting up a force field. I deliberately avoided putting embroidery on it because I wanted the whole patch to have a warped look to it (to add to the force field look). (the plastic is cut from the packaging on my new ironing board cover. . .a cover I haven't yet put on my board because I am lazy).
And the backs of the whole set.
Of course I picked through my stash to find matchy-matchy fabrics and I pulled it off pretty well. Bugs for Timon ("ooh, the little cream filled ones"), a mermaid for Under the Sea, and violet color for Violet (I put the stripes vertically to mimic her straight hair).
I think my partner will like them. I've sent so many patches to her for this round it's CRAZY. I wonder what she'll do with them?
