This is an embroidery piece I did for an up coming "Labor" Day art show. I designed the pattern in Freehand on my computer then transfered it over to the fabric with graphite paper. It took me a few hours a day over a week and a half of time. I'm really pleased with the way it came out the only part I'm not happy with is the small circles at the bottom this was the first time I've attempted something so detailed. I also got the frame at a local shop and spray painted it a high gloss red to up the Kitch factor.



Hope you enjoy it!

Started with my pattern (I cut out the dots b/c I had to get it turned in for the show and ran out of time)

That frame makes this even more awesome! And the embroidery by itself was pretty darn awesome already!
