Yay for nerd crafts!
These pokemon have been stitched on what I believe is 10-count plastic canvas, using doubled-up embroidery floss. Lugia is about 3 1/4 inches or 8 cm across, to give you a size idea.
Goodness, these take a lot of floss. Good for using up my excess stash.
I still want to make so many of these. They're addicting.. they look so awesome.
