I made this for cupcakeguru in the latest OTT swap. I found the image online and thought how fun it would be to stitch all those sketchy lines around the yellow moon. I modified the image slightly, simplifying his arm, cause the skeleton hand seemed a bit too detailed for something that's only 3"x3".



I didn't have any yellow cotton fabric, so I took some white cotton & colored it in with a yellow fabric marker, then heat set it with the iron.

I ironed stitch witchery on the back, cut out a circle, machine appliqued it onto black fabric using glow in the dark thread... then I traced on the main image.

The sketchy stitchings around the edge were randomly freehanded with one strand of floss. I ended up also hand appliqueing on the head because I thought it would look cleaner than embroidering it.

Here's a picture before I sewed it into the ornament:

Thanks! Stitching around and around in circles was by far the most fun part about this project. Smiley
