Death's Head Hawk Moth Custom Pin


Nearly 5 hours of work, but I think worth it!  I'm pleased with how the custom Silence of the Lambs icon turned out.  




Four layers of felt make up the body and wings which were hand-cut and stitched.  Details were embroidered as well as needle-felted using wool roving and other wool fibers.  Its wings span approximately 4 inches from tip to tip.

Wow! That turned out great. I am impressed. Congrats on the exposure on Etsy, too. Now go celebrate with some Chianti (minus the fava beans).
