I'm so excited to present my first finished embroidery project! I love Firefly, and Kaylee is one of my favorite characters. One day the idea of embroidering this quote onto a mug rug just popped into my head and I had to make it! I fond a pretty font in paint.net and use the program to curve the font a bit too. It's all chain stitch and luckily the photo blurs how uneven my stitches are.
Despite its flaws, I love it and can't wait to finish the mug rug.
Funny story about this piece. I had only two (now three, I bought a 2" one today!) hoops, I was so excited to start that when I couldn't find the smaller one, I used the big
I thought I would waste a ton of fabric, but when I cut out the quote, it didn't actually waste that much, just a few inches from the edge of the cloth.
And here's what the original quote was going to look like. I think my stitching is as messy as my handwriting.
Thank you so much for looking. And one small question. I noticed that when I do curves, the chain stitches don't usually lie flat, they go with the curve and expose the place where the thread comes up to form the next stitch. Could the size of my stitches be the problem, or something else? I hope that made sense, I should probably be sleeping.
