Before And After


I hope that the before  after pictures look pretty much the same as each other! I felt as though I was wrestling with a dinosaur at times, but the job is done. Here's a closer view of the trees:

 I learnt various tricks along the way. When I sewed the clouds on, I sewed the top of the cloud and then sewed the bottom separately from the same direction, so that I didn't have to turn the work. I sewed the 'lava' onto the mountain before I sewed the mountain to the backing, so that I could do all the wiggles.

 I'm pleased with the back of the work. Following my discovery when making towels, I used a thread in the bobbin that matched each background section.

So there isn't a glaring 'ghost image' on the back.

It's all rolled up and ready to be collected by the dinosaur-fan's dad. It's going to be a Christmas present, so I'm guessing Dad will have to smuggle it in discreetly. 


  1. Wow, it looks amazing! 🤩 And to have added to your repertoire of tricks is equally wonderful

  2. That looks great! Congratulations! You're right, with a sewing machine you can have different colour threads for the front and back. Your idea is very useful, I'll keep it in mind, thank you!

  3. This is fantastic, what a lucky boy.
