i made this padded pouch for my best friend as a thank you gift for being awesome and for helping me out feeding me and giving me smokes till the first of the month. true love i tell you.
the design was one i had saved long ago from the free dover design sampler. i used all six strands so the design would really stand out from the background. i also used bronze metallic thread as well (OH YEAH. ALL SIX STRANDS) which is a pain to work with, but i love the results. the navy blue background for the 'T' is all french knots. my fingers hurt so bad at times i wanted to cry, but i trudged on and finished it. she really loves it, so the pain was more than worth it.
sorry the pictures suck. i can't figure out how to adjust my new digital camera so that the flash doesn't completely wash the picture out or make it blurry since i can't control the shutter speed.
