Project #105 – Tanuki Embroidery

We had a few friends over for a late dinner and/or cupcakes on Saturday. Two of them got into a discussion about some of my projects, including a skirt with an embroidered tanuki on it. Which, is funny, because I’ve never made an embroidered skirt before, let alone one with a tanuki on it.

TIME TO MAKE THAT A REALITY, BABY! OH YEAH!

I sketched the outline of my tanuki onto my linen using some blue tailor’s chalk. I finished the embroidery fairly quickly, but I’ll wait to sew the whole thing into a skirt until another Make-A-Skirt Thursday.

Traditional tanukis are depicted with rather prominent…umm…huevos, so those ain’t feet at the bottom of the figure. It’s comical, but underestimate the mightiness of the tanuki at your own peril.
