Test Shot

Here's a test shot of what Simba will look like in his frame.

I bought a smaller frame ~ Simba was dwarfed by the larger one, and this size is more suitable to a baby's room anyway.

Time to cut, wrap and tape (or sew).  I'll see which works better.

Wet It and Set It

Blocking Simba now.  Added pins along the sides to keep the tapestry from pulling in as it dries.


Simba's dry now from his bath.  Time to pull the pins out and finish off all the loose threads.

I've bought backing material and quilt padding for the mounting.  Also a nice frame in a reddish brown that sets off Simba nicely.

Loose threads tucked.  

Tapestry doesn't pull in on the right side.  It is being deformed by the large moon button in the scanner.  ;- j
