Norway Loves Fish by Magical525 Norway Loves Fish by Magical525
I had a lot of trouble deciding which Norway to do. Should I do him with his fish on his head? In his hand? No fish? In the end I chose this one because the expression he had made me laugh.

Finished size: 4 3/4" high x 2 1/2" wide, that's about 11,5 x 6,25 cm according to my rulers.
Fabric used: 18 count / 7 squares per cm Aida

The pattern can be found here: Norway Loves Fish pattern

Artwork from this comic by :iconhumon: all I did was convert it to an embroidery pattern and make that.

This Norway embroidery now belongs to ~in-dis-guise as she chose this as her prize for winning second place in the #SATW-FanClub Summer competition of 2012.

heh that was the hardest part - in the end I grabbed a sharp needle (instead of the normal blunt cross stitch needle) and did longer stitches so I could stab in the middle of the cross stitches to get it right.

Is it somehow wrong that I can totally see Norway doing this?

Not wrong at all as he actually DID do this ;) (see the link next to the :iconhumon: image)

At last the wait is over! You picked a great one! It can be hard to know what to do with Norway because he's less extreme than most of the other characters and more reactive than proactive.
