oh wow...
it is really something!  i cant get over it.
i've tried to do some embroidery myself, but there is just one thing i havent managed to do - transfer my drawings to the fabric so i can trace over it.  how do you do it?  dont tell me its free hand with the needle!  well, you surely seem like the right person to give me some tips...  AWESOME WORK!!

The fabric I used is very thin--I used an old sketch I had and roughly traced the outline right on the fabric. I didn't have a fabric marker so I just used a soft pencil. Most of it was just sort of eyeballed though~

mixi ~ you can also use a Sulky transfer pen.  They work great and you can just iron your design right onto the fabric.

That's pretty sweet.  I'd never be able to do something like that.  I can't even draw anything more complex than stick figures.

Lovely!  The thin sewing thread makes it look great!  From the thumbnail I was unsure if it was a drawing or embroidery the lines were so fine and so perfect.
Fantastic work!
