I had to stop by and say those portraits are amazing...and did I read that they were your first? double wow...they are so eyecatching...glad you have a new hobby because I can't wait to see what else you do after these! The bar you set for yourself is high
It is drawn, cut out of fabric, and hand embroidered...the words were foam stick on letters that I stenciled over with fabric paint and then, since it looked messy, I embroidered around the letters--I am learning/practicing embroidery!
I used a tutorial by Troublet to do blanket stitching! I am proud of it since I struggle with embroidery! Thanks, you are so sweet!
