So this is is technically my second ever embroidery project. I used mostly satin stitch, there's a split stitch in the chain and that's about it. I'm a bit proud of it, I used no pattern, just traced over the video capture from the skit.

I had a hard time finding a darker red in the right shade to do the shadows in the fabric with but otherwise I'm pretty happy with it.

I hope you like it. I decided I wanted it with me on a daily basis so I turned it into a zippered pouch and lined it with a vinyl shower curtain so I wouldn't mess up the fabric.






C&C welcome.

Nice! I like the stitching and the white background/red zip to finish it.

Thank you, that makes the 4 days I worked on it, pulling out stitches every few minutes worth it.
