For the rabbit's jacket, did you satin stitch each square individually, or did you stitch it first and stitch the lines over it later?



THANKS FOR ALL YOUR LOVELY COMMENTS!!!  Kiss

i stitched each square individually.  i didn't want to stitch a whole block of satin stitch onto the jacket first because it's quite a large area & i don't think it would've worked too well.

i've nearly finished the 3rd one which is the scene where the Queen's yelling OFF WITH HER HEAD!  it keeps me out of mischief Wink

edit:  forgot to say that yes, it was all done by hand.  i don't have very good relationships with sewing machines  Undecided

anyone else who wants to stitch some Alice, i used this book:
http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=Dh_O7fHDZv0C&dq=alice+in+wonderland+colouring+book&pg=PP1&ots=AhLIcMe6ZT&source=bn&sig=5K2lIEKJ9J45esxOA2oTzHWEpXs&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=4&ct=result
to trace the pictures, & transfered it onto fabric with carbon paper.  sometimes you have to adapt the original illustration a little bit because all the engraving effect thing going on isn't very embroidery friendly.  it's a really good book because i'm sure the pictures can be put to lots of uses.   Kiss

What stitch did you use on Alice's skirt? 

oops, forgot to answer this.  i think the stitch is called brick stitch? not sure about that.  i stitched a row & then with the next row it was like the pattern you use when you're laying bricks.  is that brick stitch??  i used it on the rabbit's waistcoat, too.
