A friend is visiting from England tomorrow and I knew I had to stitch up a unique souvenir, fast! It's all backstitch. Didn't have much time for anything fancy. Hope you like it!

This is pretty spiffy!! I've been wanting to do something similar with maps from London, Munich, Paris, etc. Great job with the layout and everything too!

That's really cool! I like the simplicity of the map design and putting it on black cloth was def a good call!

Love this!  The black was indeed the perfect choice, but I'm also a huge fan of how architectural the font is, which makes it a perfect compliment to the map.  Great job.


Also, much icon love!  Craig Finn FTW!
