I made this piece for my hubby for his birthday. I borrowed his handkerchief before we went our separate ways to school with permission to alter it, then a couple months later, viola.
I've been taking tango classes so I like to imagine that we are the dancers doing the tango. I'm happy with it except that the guy's back has an eXtreme arch
I got the design idea from a line drawing of dancers I saw on an embroidery site.
His initials are WMD (hehe), so that's downplayed a bit for those of us who spend a long time figuring out whether the D is the first, middle, or last initial.
So.. this is what the back of the handkerchief looks like. I've never really needle-anythinged before, and I wasn't actually sure how to go about it. Should I be doing lots of little tie-offs, or is it all one continuous thing since I only used one color? I also clearly didn't use a real stitch... I should probably just look it up on youtube, but I always prefer input from real life crafty people
Thanks for looking! You guys are an inspiration for me to do random lil things when the mood strikes.
