I made this for Faux_Valentine for the Hoopla Swap (#2), and I'm really happy with how it turned out.





How I made it: I printed off an image of a skeleton cameo, poked holes every few millimeters along the image's outline, and rubbed chalk over the holes to transfer the image onto black quilter's fabric. Then I used 2 strands of pale pink embroidery floss and backstitched the whole thing. I painted a wooden hoop with white pearlescent acrylic paint, so that it has a lovely silver shimmer to it. Voila! Now I just need to make one for myself. Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
