BFC0459 Art Nouveau - Underwater
As you can probably tell I love Art Nouveau designs. Up until now I have mainly focused on the Art Nouveau floral and bird designs but the artists of this period also used a myriad of animals, insects and sea life. Their fauna fascinate me because though they are decorative art, they also have a very realistic look. And especially fascinating are the expressions they achieved with so few details. The characters almost have *attitude*! I think the octopus below definitely has attitude. :)
With summer approaching in much of the world, these designs would be perfect for decorating - linens, curtains, ourselves. They can be used individually of course, but I have also designed them with combinations in mind. The screen shot below shows a possible layout using all the designs. I used several metallic threads in stitching my samples. These designs really lend themselves to metallic thread as many have one sheer color stitching over another. You can use regular metallic, threads such as Madeira Super Twist and I think variegated would also work great.

I love your collection of marine life. My husband has a collection of 1920's furniture with cane detail that I have been trying to decide how to upholster. I was wondering if you could create these marine life images as images I could appliqué onto a suitable fabric. Even if I just used them for pillows or bolsters? I don't have a machine to recreate them so i need to ask someone who can if this is even possible.
Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for asking about this! But, after much thought, I'm afraid I'm going to discourage you. This set of designs was made in 2006. I no longer have the stitchouts so we can't take new photos. So the only way would be to take the images from the website. But these are only 72 dpi and from what I checked, you need a much higher dpi to print fabric.
The only thing I can think of if to have someone stitch the designs for you and then you can take your own pictures. This might be expensive. I have no idea what someone would charge. You could supply the fabric and tell them the sizes - like for a pillow or bolster.
llA good place to ask for someone is on my Yahoo group. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/BFC-Creations/info I have about 10,000 members so a lot of possilbilities. Just join the group and then you can post the question explaining what you need, etc.
I hope this works for you!
