Fans of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood will recognize this as King Friday XIII of the Neighborhood of Make Believe.  This is my first attempt at crayon-tinting and overall I like how it came out.  Took the pic before I'd set the crayon with an iron, so the colors are a bit richer now.  Since this is a dishtowel, I sure hope the crayon-tinting will hold up to regular washing!

Embroidered with two strands.  Mostly stem stitch, as that is my fave, but also back stitch and chain stitch where needed.

Thanks for looking!

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