while looking through a binder of embroidery patterns I found this stencil I cut a long time ago.
I splattered neon acrylic paint on the front and back, then painted the stencil.  after a few coats of glitter paint on the word "parties" it was ready to be stitched.


Around all of the text, except for "parties", I outlined the letters with black DMC floss in back stitch.

And because parties should be wild and crazy I used glow-in-the-dark thread around the letters.  I did this part in a stem stitch.  It looks so awesome when it's all lit up!


Comments and criticism are welcomed and appreciated.  Thanks for looking!

Awesome to the Maxx! I really love those neon, dayglo eighties colors [more than I'm usually willing to admit.] Great job!

Remember the time he ate my goldfish and you lied to me and said I never had a goldfish? Then why'd I have the bowl Bart?

Why.

Did I Have.

The Bowl??
