Found this awesome dolly style white button up top at the thrift store-- It's a wee bit big on me, but I wanted to show off my additions to it anyway... The skull and broken heart/spider webs were drawn by my boy... Embroidered by me... Hope you like! Click on the photos to see the full sized images...

Thanks! Glad you liked it. At first the skull itself was just ecru, but you couldn't see it, so I wove back around the backstitch with dark gray (there's a name for this stitch but I can't remember what it is). I was really happy with the way they turned out.

Looks great. I'm sure it will be hard to part with.
