Inspiration: The God of Crabs



When I first saw this on Flickr I thought that it was just printed on the fabric and then a little bit of stitching around the image. The entire piece is embroidered with various types of stitches. It is fully embroidered, people! You can pick your jaw up off the floor now. Mother Eagle's The God of Crabs is absolutely stunning. I'm not sure there are enough adjectives to describe how amazing this is. Check out the various stages of this piece here.  Also check out her other pieces of art, you will not be disappointed. Many of her pieces are available on her website and you can see other collections there as well; Made By Mother Eagle. 

Hi, I'm Pam - I've been a moderator for the Needlework boards on Craftster since 2004 and you can also see me in the Craftster Quickies video series.

I am a lover of all things vintage but I particularly have a fondness for vintage embroidery patterns, which I collect every chance I can get!
