I'm in a tea towel swap with some friends and am stitching Bigfoot on all there towels.  I just finished my 4th and here it is!  I wanted to have him in a bowler hat and a monocle, but couldn't figure out the final touch. The towel arrived to me with a light stain on one corner and then had my own embarrassing public mustard-on-chin experience last week and a Bigfoot stitch was born.



Here's a close up of his dribbled upon chin (and his monocle chain):



An angle shot to show some of the texture:



I used a lot of split stitch which I hadn't done before and I'm pretty sure I like it for filling.  There's also some satin, back, random and chain stitch.

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

Thank you!  That's my version of a bowler without actually looking at a reference of a bowler.  :\

This is absolutely brilliant! I just love it!

Thanks, dollface!  I struggled with how to customize this one and then TING had a light bulb moment.

Aw, thanks!  He's not grumpy, that's just how his face is.   Wink

I was so happy to see a new bigfoot on the board today! Every one I see I think is the best one yet, but you keep topping yourself. A derby hat and monocle, how awesome! And the mustard on his chin is the perfect counterpoint. I don't know how many more of these you have to go but I'm loving them. You got some lucky recipients.  Smiley

Yay! Six more! I'll be keeping an eye out for them.

When you're all done you should do a retrospective post with all of them together.  Smiley

Thank you so much; that's so sweet and so nice to hear!

I had planned on making a "collage" with the images for flickr, so perhaps I'll post here, too.
