I stitched this up for my fella, who loves everything and anything with devils on it. It's the smaller face from Sublime Stitching's "El Diablo" pattern set. I wouldn't normally do just a lighter outline on such a dark colour, but I think it looks ok, and it really makes the eyes pop. I wanted to keep it fast and simple because it's a pillowcase, so it's going to get slept on, sat on, and washed a million times, so it's not exactly going to be an heirloom. I used split stitch, back stitch, and satin stitch. Worked up in about 2 hours, and it's far from perfect. I didn't realise when I bought the pillowcase that it had such a narrow space outside the stitching, and that's where I had planned to embroider, so I picked out the stitches and secured the ends.

The colour looks a little orangey here, but it's a true lipstick red.



Thanks for looking! Comments and questions are always welcome. Cheesy

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

Thanks! Cheesy
 I'm itching to do a bigger embroidery piece now. It's been far too long.
