"Something that could never ever possibly destroy us"

Mr. Stay Puft!

In our home office, we decided to make a large wall collage of various pieces representing our favorite subject - pop culture. Still in the works, but Beetlejuice, Gremlins, Pac Man, Edward Scissorhands, and The Big Lebowski are all represented. And I thought it would be fun to create something other than a print or stitch. So I decided to try my hand at bead embroidery.



I found an image I liked online, cropped it to my liking, flipped it horizontally, and printed it on transfer paper. Then I ironed it on to some muslin, and Voila! Stay Puft on fabric. From there, I took seed beads and invisible thread and attached beads four at a time, then relooping through two to make sure they stayed in place. Several hundred beads later and Stay Puft was born!
Joe liked it enough to encourage me to do a set. So I now have plans for Slimer, the Ghostbusters logo, and the trap. More things to add to my to-do list!

  1. OMG! I love your style and sense of humor, Girlie!
    I'd love to follow you, but don't see anything but feed-reader do-hickies. If you had a "joind this site with google friend connect button", I'd press it. I may just need to refresh a couple times, though. I'll be checking back.
    Best,

    Ricochet and Away!
