With the exception of the skull (Halloween purchase) and the shells, everything has been hand-made. Most of it, with the exception of the rocks (papier maché) and the buckles on the treasure chest (bent wire), is fabric and/or stitched. Both octopuses are crocheted, the pale one was intended for the lid of the chest but was too small so redeployed; the various weeds are painted ribbon, latex and chain stitch.
To add to my smugness, this is intended for the next exhibition of my local Embroiders' Guild which has a deadline of April - for once I've finished a project early. Although I have another idea which I want to enter, so I'm sure I'll be finishing that at midnight before the deadline.
