awesome!  I love this Smiley

I've also done the hitchiking, it's way more tame than most people think, if you do it right.  You gotta protect yourself, and it's best not to do alone.  I have hitched alone ( one of the the longest trips I ever made I did on my own and that was Utah to S Florida) but I wouldn't recommend it, it was kinda scary.

If you do it again, the best advice I ever got from anyone and it helped me out a lot is to remember truck stops are your best friend.  1. truckdrivers are WAY less likley to kill/kidnapp/stab you, they have too many ways of identifying them, plus they have CB radio. 2. Truckstops have showers!!! 3.phones, food, and tons of people around!

I had some of the best times of my life hitching, those days are over for me, I've settled down quite a bit, but it's definitley something I'll remember forever Smiley

sorry about the hijack, I always get excited talking to other people that have done it Smiley

If I could buy the world a coke, then I would say "SCREW YOU WORLD" and go buy more fabric.

first off, awesome project. the amount of stitchwork is unbelievable and the quality is much. much better than most people start off with (myself included).

I've also done the hitchiking, it's way more tame than most people think, if you do it right.  You gotta protect yourself, and it's best not to do alone.  I have hitched alone ( one of the the longest trips I ever made I did on my own and that was Utah to S Florida) but I wouldn't recommend it, it was kinda scary.

I've also hitched quite a bit, in Canada, the USA, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Botswana, Zanzibar, Israel and the list goes on.

I won't recommend it, it takes a certain type, but it is one incredible way to travel. I've met incredible people and had almost exclusively good times. I can say without exaggeration that the two worst hitchhiking moments were hitting and killing a deer on a rural road in BC and being forced by a trucker to go see the Terry Fox monument at 2 in the morning.

Congratulations on a job well done and a great sounding trip.

The way you did the face and eyes especially came out amazing.  I really did a quadruple take on that.

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

nice!

to make it a patch i would
a)put some iron on facing on the back (costs about 2 dollars a yard) to protect the stitches and make the fabric stiffer
b)zig zag stitch around it or add binding/bias tape to the edges (if you look at my most recent project you can see what zig zag will look like)
c)sew it on the jacket!
