For the Quentin Tarnatino/Robert Rodriguez swap I stitched this up for Ralph. I fashioned it into a patch so she could sew it onto whatever she wanted.

Its pretty tiny... everything's 2 strands of floss, the main skin of the alien is applique, the outline is backstitch, everything else is satin stitch... I've never really seriously attempted satin stitch before and it was quite nervewracking to be honest, I pretty much learned how to do satin stitch while doing this piece, starting with really dodgy technique, making stupid mistakes (I changed the direction of the thread on the 'I' ... WHY?!?!) but I came to the realisation in the end that the outline does a hella lotta work tidying it all up... <3 you outline...

here's the lowdown on what I sent an what I received in total. She made me some awesome jewellery, baby onesies and coasters :-).The whole gallery is here

I've also made the pattern available for free on my blog.. why not?  Kiss

in retrospect, he needs a tie, or a pencil... or maybe a comedy pair of uniglasses...

The good news Is I get me serger delivered tomorrow, so bye bye zig zag stitch pretending to be an overlocked edge *pumps fist in air*
