Monster Stack was a piece of embroidery and felt collage i created from scratch for the project. I started by counting how many stitches i would need to create a piece the correct size for the template, hand embroidering the rainbow background, and stitching on the little felt monsters. Each monster was then given a pair of bead eyes and a teeny stitched on mouth. I finished the piece off with a splattering of tiny heart shaped buttons and an A Little Stranger woven label.

Meet Real x Nibbler – a triple collab between Onell Design, Real x Head & The Tarantulas, with little hoodies made by yours truly in rainbow of colours. The little guys went down a treat at Comic-Con; the hoodied nibblers sold out as soon as they went on sale, and the The Fishtank Castle‘s playset’s too! I had a blast working on these little hoodies, and even more fun hanging out with everyone on the booth -these boys are awesome and a lot of fun to be around!

And for those of you not at Comic-Con, fret not! We still have a few tricks up our sleeves – there will be an online release in Autumn 2011. Keep your eyes on The Tarantulas blog for updates.

Nibblers and sammichesChris hard at work. Note: delicious breakfast bagels were also available, never say Chris dosen’t look after you!
