Just finished this five minutes ago. Grin



Four inch hoop, backstitch and satin stitch. (Excuse the gaps in the satin stitch in the photo, the threads were kind of pushed to the side. Picture fail. xD) I wish I'd been able to get the letters a little more uniform, though. Sad I'm not very good at stitching straight liiiiines.



You can see the picture it's based off of in this (blurry) picture. If you google something like "Excuse me shark" you'll find the original image. This picture has always made me giggle pretty hard, so I decided to stitch it up since I bought a few adorable little hoops today. I gave it to my brother, as thanks for rigging up my also new 16 inch long plastic great white shark so I can hang it from my ceiling.

<3 Sharks.
