I thought I'd share some of the projects that I completed for Christmas in 2010.
First, a Kirby's Epic Yarn hoop. I was not totally happy with this one. I think the fabric colors are a too dark, and Kirby isn't exactly round. It was my first time couching. My friend seemed to like it, though!
Secondly, a Scott Pilgrim hoop, based on the video game. This was actually the first one I did, and you can tell- my stitches aren't as neat as they could be. I did some tinting on this with colored pencils, which worked really well. I like the shading on this one a lot.
Next, a quote from Dragon Age, along with a rose. The gryphon in the background is colored pencils again, as well as the shading on the rose. I really like how this one turned out!
The last of the hoops is my very favorite. I freehanded the little dog, and she looks just like my friends' dog Dixie! The leaves are felt.
All of the hoops were wrapped with a (somewhat) coordinated ribbon, and the backs are finished with felt.
Thanks for looking and suffering through my blurry pictures!
