So I found this 1961 coloring book online and literally LOST it at work one day it had me cracking up!

http://www.adtothebone.com/?p=174

So I decided to take a page and base a embroidery project on it ...


My result ...




Thoughts? I think I'll end up doing a few more from this book!
I was getting frustrated with how child-like the lettering was coming out, but then I decided I kinda liked it as it added to the whole 'coloring book' feel of it all.

I think the embroidered text looks great! I could never stitch it that neatly.

I followed your link... and now I'm trying to not wet myself at work. This website is a jewel! Thank you!

I'm so glad others can find it as humorous as I did!!

I think my other favorite page is "This is my company's president. He hates me. He calls me bad names, but he gives me a lot of raises. My wife calls him papa."

OMG I just can't get enough of it!

I was just going to ask where the "important" crayon is.  Smiley   

Maybe it's somewhere between gray, and Mahogany. Those seem to be pretty important colors in this particular coloring book. 

Great job on the embroidery!

Great job! The detail on this is super good. Did you freehand it or draw it first? Either way, it rocks!

I used carbon paper and traced the image onto the fabric - then did the lettering freehand. I was going to type it up and then trace it but thought I could do an okay job freehand (and now I know better lol).
