These are my first major embroidery projects. Before, I had only done little designs on some wallets and things.
For this one, I just printed out one of the original Alice pictures and traced it onto the fabric...using a pen, being the goober I am and not having anything else handy.
So forgive the small ink pen marks that are still visible. I haven't decided what to do about them yet.
I might go back later and fill in some more. What do you guys think?
My cousin's daughter just turned 3, and she loves butterflies. So I made her this (sorry for the poor lighting-the picture were taken in the truck on the way to the party):
I left it in the hoop as art for her wall. I wish that I had really taken the time to finish the back nicely, but as I was finishing on the car ride to the party (
), I had to manage by gluing down the edges of the fabric to the inside of the hoop. It looks sloppy in places, but when it's hanging up, you won't be able to tell.
Let me know what you think!
