I got this purple 'thing' today, I'm not sure what you call it, for a dollar at a grocery store. I came home and emb this tiger, from Ann the gran, on it. It was a white tiger, so I wasn't sure about the colors, for a bengal tiger.It is made out of rip flag fabric and I used cut-a-way, but it still puckered some. It is to put by my husbands chair, to put his blood pressure cuff in..... He may need to check his pressure while watching the games.-lol-Toogie EdITED-Tuesday- I went back, got more, read in CHAT

Love the tiger stitch out. Great idea to put the blood pressure cuff in your magazine / knitting holder. Happy Stitching

I thought they would be good in the bath, to either put rolls of toliet tissue or towels. It is on the small size, 9 inches tall and about 11 in wide,sides are 7 or 8 in. Thanks for commenting/lQQking-Toogie

Gosh the wood frame alone is worth more than a $1. Even if you do go back and they only have colours you don't like you can make new fabric to fit.
Good job on the Tiger.

I had the same thought as you, to use fabric I have in the frame, and use this flag fabric for a garden flag. Only thing, while the flag fabric is good when it rains, the dark colors fade in the sun as does the stitching.Thanks for lQQking-Toogie

Thanks Sarah. I started to put a tiger I had stitched before and I thought,'why do I have all these designs,if I'm not going to try them?'. I knew the other tiger stitched well, but I also thought for a dollar if it messes up, who cares.

These 'things' fit nicely under the chair side table. Thanks, I like the tiger but it is rather dense.The colors were white, silver and wisteria violet. I used golden shades,instead.

I ran in the market while hubby was waiting in car, to get something to cook, and found these. I should have bought more, as they probally won't have anymore when I go back.

great looking, Toogie. And not bad for a dollar for something to stitch on that's useful.

I could kick myself. I only bought 2. Could have been useful for those,unexpected little somethings, for christmas gifts. I wanted to see if I could stitch on them first. They had only 1 more purple, a few red and a few bright green. I unscrewed the dowels at the top, so I could hoop and just re-screwed them, when I finished. Easy,peasy.-Toogie

He might get his arm bitten off while reaching for that cuff. Looks realistic to me. :-)

Wasn't sure, but am satisfied, with colors. The white tiger was pretty in the original design,too.
