I wasn't sure if anyone would be interested, but here's a pattern for an audrey hepburn as Holly Golightly if you'd like to take a whirl at it.
I'd love to see what colors you all come up with!  Wink


I'm just gearing up for the 'crazy about Tiffany's swap'...but don't want to craft too much without knowing who my partner will be!

I used the pattern to make my first pillow!  It is a little lumpy on one side, but I think it is pretty great.  Thanks for the awesome pattern/inspiration!

Great pattern!!  Might look nice with a black background and using a "tiffany blue" thread for the entire piece.

I did it over the summer and I used black in the background and Pink for audrey, and Im thinking of eventually doing another one in the opposite colors and then framing them together!

My Audrey Hepburn. DMC 930 for that smoky blue colour.

There's a slight difference to the pattern in the hair - I have no idea what happened or where the mistake is, I just know I had to fudge it a little over the right eye.

I know this is an old thread, but I just found the pattern so I figured I would post this anyway
http://coincollect408.deviantart.com/art/Audrey-Hepburn-Xstitch-116791798

I used S550 for the pattern and E940 (glow in the dark) for the backround.

coincollect408 ...that looks amazing! The tassels really add something wild to the pillow! I love the colors too...you can't go wrong with pink & green! I've never done anything with glow in the dark thread before...but I bet it looks stunning!

Thank you so much for sharing!
Thank you to everyone for sharing their projects! It makes me so happy to know that you've all had fun & amazing results from the pattern!

Jemand ...wow to you & your pattern! So much detail! I'd love to see that one finished!

I am finally posting this pic.  I have the fabric that I found to make a pillow and I will post if I ever get around to that but here is the cross stitch.... honestly I was very disappointed at the way it came out!  It was harder than I thought and I don't think the image is as recognizable as it is on white!  I am interested in feedback!
Thanks

i've seen that complaint before (it was about stencilling) and a person commented that when choosing to work with white on dark, the crafter should have reversed the image.  so if you had stitched with white the face areas that you left bla(n/c)k, and then left bla(n/c)k the shadow areas, then you would have come up with a recognizable image.

still, it is clear that you put a lot of work into it and your stitching looks neat and stuff...

Yay! I'd love to see the finished piece in your room. You'd love seeing the gorgeous crocheted blanket that pixieval made for me in a recent swap.
She posted it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357476.0
It's truly inspiring!
