I am new to embroidery to this was a learning experience! My first long and short stitch, and I'd improved by the end, so that was nice
. It was pretty fun! I made it from a pattern in doodle stitching by Aimee Ray, but I completely changed the eyes (from human to cat's eyes). I made it for my sister.
And BAM, macro shot! (Questionable idea considering my stitches could use some work... but I just can't resist macro shots)
And here is my sister trying to look sultry or something hahaha, well she liked it so I'm happy!
Next time I would make it a little bigger vertically and make the ribbon ties a bit longer. Also make the seams a bit less well... lumpy looking lol!
Umm, I think I used 6 strands for the grey backstitch around the edges and 3 strands for everything else
