That's what he said...

Ok, enough of being a pervert....

I got these vintage hankies that just BEGGED to be embroidered, so here is the first in the set of 3 I'm making...

and here is the back...

As you can see if you know the pattern, I had to kind of wing it on the errr... wing XD

Very nice.  My embroidery always looks terrible in the back.   That's why I don't do it anymore.  I'm impressed.

I think it looks great!  Don't worry about how it looks on the back.  It's historicly accurate to be messy.  Seriously.  I've done the research. Grin

Good job!
