Surfing the web one evening I came across this site promoting a musical about a transvestite vampire (or transvespire!). LOVE!
The clip of the song on the site makes it totally worth the visit http://www.dragulathemusical.com/
I thought the logo was all kinds of awesome, so I KNEW I had to do something with it.
I emailed Vellum Publishing to ask permission to use it as an embroidery pattern (and to publish it online as a finished piece). They agreed. yay!
I accidentally reversed the leg. I had reversed the image to print and make an iron-on transfer, but printer died, so I drew it out by hand onto the fabric. I forgot to flip the image back until it came time to draw the letters
It is stitched in 2 ply floss in seed, split, and satin stitch. The fishnet hose are done in a long woven stitch.
This was my first real go at satin stitching (the book Embroidered Effects by Jenny Hart helped me FINALLY understand how to do it!).
I think Dragula is going to get framed and displayed on my wall of misfit art
