This is an embroidery based on my firend's tattoo Smiley I gave it to her as a "thanks for existing" present.
Note to self: Newt time you do something like this try coloring it in first! Then do the outlines. Wink
But hey, I'm a beginner. Can't think of everything

This looks great don't be so hard on yourself. I think the filling looks very nice. I love the picture too.

2 pieces of cardboad (cut a hole in the middle of one of them) glue them together with the pic in between them. Stitch around the pic to a)make it look better b) make sure they stay together Smiley
