I embroidered this sugar skull for my partner in "The Great Skull Swap" swap. It is an original design and measures approx. 4x6. You can't really see it in these crappy pics, but I used white stitching all in the background to give it consistent texture.





Thanks for looking!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thanks!

Fantastic. I love the white stitching, it adds so much to it. Are the teardrop shapes under his nose meant to look like a mustache?

Holy crap that is amazing. I tried to do something similar a few times, but I'm not experienced with embroidery.
