My swap piece finally made its way to Northern Ireland into the hands of Cherry and Cinnamon, so I can post pictures! Since Bridgeen said she liked odd creatures, I stitched an okapi (okapia johnstoni), one of my favorite unusual animals.
I used a picture from Wikipedia (and you can find out more about the okapi on Arkive). Now, on to the embroidery! I embroidered my okapi illustration in reddish brown and black threads onto a canvas totebag.
