When thinking about doing something that says Croydon, there's quiet a few things that jump to mind but one thing that has been a constant is Vermeers classic Girl with a Pearl Earring (yes, like the film non art loving folk) - I've nearly always seen her with a long pony tail and something about the way her mouth is painted screams south London... so what better way to tribute this by embroidering it the way I see it... innit.

I think you'll agree Harry Hill knows how to celebrate Croydon the best....
