The avocado makes me so happy! I think it's obvious I'm slightly obsessed with them, as I make them as pins, christmas ornaments, barrettes, necklaces, every way I can think of!

I created this miniature avocado using punchneedle embroidery, which is akin to an ancient rug hooking technique on a smaller scale. I drew up the avocado on weaver's cloth and used my adjustable needle to create the realistic dimensional effect. By slowly increasing the height of the needle, the pit becomes incredibly realistic work of art!

I created this design on weaver's cloth that my husband and I hand dyed a rich dark purple and then framed in a 4 inch (10.2 cm) embroidery hoop that I stained.

This asymmetrical wall hanging version would be a perfect addition to a kitchen, or super fun for a quirky dorm room.

Hand dyed floss is also used in this design for depth.

A 4 inch (10.2 cm) circle of eco-felt made from 100% post consumer plastic bottles is attached to the back, which will be initialed by me! :)

**Made to order - please allow 5 days until ready to ship**

The avocado arrives in pretty eco-friendly packaging all set for gift giving. Give from the heart!

The avocado comes with a small nail for hanging.

FYI:
Some elements may vary slightly depending upon availability of products needed to create the art. Each one is hand drawn (no pattern) so please allow for subtle differences. I endeavor to stick as closely to original as possible but sometimes thread shades will vary slightly - as most are hand dyed. The weaver's cloth is also hand dyed and though the same brand and color dye will be used as the original to dye the weaver's cloth, shades may vary slightly from the original pictured depending on your computer screen and dye lot.

Look at all the fun ways you can celebrate the avocado:
