I JUST started stitching using Sublime Stitching patterns mostly, but wanted to show off my Silver Sufer.

(If you're wondering why Silver Surfer? Why boxers? Suffice to say, they were a gift, and I thought they'd be funny.)

Currently stitching some onesies without the tearaway backing stuff, and kind of hating it.

My mom is thrilled that I've started stitching, by the way. For Valentine's Day, she sent me her old pattern books from the 70's, and some beautiful vintage linen hankies. They're almost too pretty to embroider... not that that'll stop me.

A close-up of the Silver Surfer, as well as all of my stitching projects can be found here.

That's a really cool gift.  Nice stitching!

Those are amazing! Did you just freehand that pattern? My boyfriend has a tattoo of Silver Surfer on his back, it's his favorite superhero ever.. so I'm thinking this would be an awesome gift. I just don't know if I could draw that out as well... Hmm.

I like the boxers, I hope the recipient liked them as well.  I love the color choices for the napkins.  Great job!

Wow, that's cool. Great stitching! How did you get the pattern on the dark fabric?

I've done several pairs of boxer shorts for my beau too. It adds a personal touch to his boring everyday undies.  Cheesy

How I got the pattern, and put them on the boxers: I found the most iconic picture I could, and made it a black & white image on my computer, where I also re-sized it. I traced it onto the boxers using white transfer paper. The original design had a lot of lines for muscles & shadows, some of which looked better than others, so I would pick & choose which areas to stitch. Aside from the metallic thread, which sucked, it was a fairly easy project. Smiley

And yes, the recipient LOVED them. The Silver Surfer is his favorite.

What a great idea! My bf wants to see the new Fantastic 4 movie, despite how disappointing the first one was, purely because of the Silver Surfer, this sort of thing would make a really great gift for him, too.

Where did you find the white transfer paper? I am always looking for stuff like that but I never seem able to find it. Sad

The picture itself is great but you really chose a good color/pattern.  I would believe this was store-bought if told so!!!

Its projects like this that make me want to put down my cross-stitch.
