Here are my first attempts at embroidery. The first was the Serenity patch... as in Firefly... are ya with me?
It's two layers of felt and I did a horrible rendition of satin stitch on it.
Moving on, I made this pillow. I found the picture online, but after 10 minutes of googling I can't find it again. I wasn't happy after I sewed the orange stripe in, but it was too small otherwise. Whatcha gonna do?
My favorite has been this squirrel one. I pattern is from here http://zuill.us/andreablog/2009/12/29/january-2010s-embroidery-pattern/
. There's a lot of cute pattern there. It's on a light denim material, had to be dark because I wanted the squirrels to be white. It's a christmas gift for my grandma, there's albino squirrels where we live.
All in all, i'm really liking embroidery. It's more instant gratification that knitting, and it's a bit like drawing on fabric. But you all already knew that didn't you.
