I decided to learn how to embroider a couple of months ago after seeing all of the great projects on this site. This is the first (and only) thing I ever embroidered. I just found it in one of my dresser drawers.
It turned out a little crooked and shaky because I can't sew in a straight line, but I kind of like it.
One of the things I don't like is that lines are really thin compared to the other needleworks I see on this site. I don't know if I'm using the wrong kind of thread or fabric or something. Are there some special materials you need for embroidery to make it turn out right?
