Another Snail Project
When I hunt snails, I wave a scarf in front of me to ward off the mosquitoes. I got it into my head to make myself some 22 inch square scarves with actual snails on them for just that purpose. I drew up four designs in Illustrator. This is one of them.
Then I formatted it for Spoonflower and uploaded the designs. Less than a week later the fabric arrived. All I had to do was cut them out and stitch up the edges. Here's how they turned out.
I'm ready for my next snail hunt. The snails become active around late May and June and the little ones start hatching and climbing up the trees. If you want to see Liguus Tree Snails for yourself, just head to Big Cypress or the Everglades.
