Today was one of my best friend's birthday, and we have an inside joke about Mr. T (well, not really an "inside joke"... we're just obsessed, can you blame us?!) so I made this little tote for her:



His face is brown felt witht he details embroidered on and gold chains that are sewn on. I also made pins for it out of random funky buttons. She loved it, and I loved making it for her  Cheesy

I wish I would have gotten a close-up before I gave it to her, but basically the beard, mohawk, and eyebrows are satin stitch and everything else is chain stitch. There's some details around the nose/eyes that are brown so you can't really see them in the picture.

Thanks so much everyone! I'm still new to embroidery so this was a huge accomplishment for me!  Cheesy
