Well, maybe not....

This is my first EVER embroidery project. I got a "learn to embroider" kit from the amazing TroubleT in the Ongoing Wish Swap and decided to finally get over my jitters and try it. She had sent me this amazing squirrel pattern (she found the eyes super creepy!) so I sat down and followed her directions.

He is stitched using chain stitch, back stitch, satin stitch. I tinted him with crayons and sewed a green ribbon on for an added effect. I'm really proud of my first attempt and already have about a hundred ideas on what to do next!

If you remove the brown line between the eyes it won't look as evil Tongue I think it's great that you finally tried embroidery Cheesy
