1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Bob Dobbs Cross Stitch! on: October 23, 2011 06:39:49 PM
Hey all!

This big Bob Dobbs was my first project in years & I think it turned out pretty okay  Grin



I chose a 10.5 x 13.5 piece of plastic canvas and used metallic craft cord for the Bob part & a variegated wool yarn for the background.  I just used a straight up cross stitch for the entire project.  In retrospect I would have used some other stitches to soften the image & make it less pixelated, but hindsight is 50/50.
Overall I think it took approx 36 hrs to complete based on timing myself on the last few weeks of it.  

Let me know what you think!
