In case you missed it, this month I am taking part in the A-Z Challenge, you can read more about it on the website here: a-to-zchallenge.com.
So once again, this month I am stitching a Disney character based alphabet sampler.
Each letter is hand stitched to about 1.5ins give or take, and though I was inspired by Disney, I designed the letters myself, based on characters from the films, simply rough sketching in a notebook (so don’t be surprised if this ends up a little messy!)
I didn’t have rules as such, though I have tried not to use a film more than once through the sampler, and of course some letters offered far more limited choices!
And so what will follow every day through April, is a short post sharing each letter!
A little artistic and linguistic license today, with Xiang Yu, more commonly known as Shan Yu, villainous leader of the Huns, from Mulan. Had to be him as the only character beginning with X (in Chinese). I had a little fun attempting to stitch Hayabusa the falcon. Mulan is such a wonderful film with fun songs and great characters! It was released in June 1998, and is Disney Animated Classic #36.
Which country is your favourite Disney character from?
Which character would you choose for X if there wasn’t one at all? I would have considered some sort of play on something…
Previous Letter W
Next Letter Y
Or start at the beginning.
