This is my very first Embroidery Hoop!! It was so hard to me decide which embroider to do, but I decided to make my loved Mr.Sweeney Todd!  And one of his quotes on the film of Tim Burton  Grin

Progress...


And done!


I need to make a frame for him, hoops are so expensive here... Lol

And now, I'm making Mrs.Lovett, I am so slow doing words  Sad

Progress of Mrs.Lovett. I really like how came out the words on this embroidery, but I hate the Sweeney's ones!






Updated!! Final pics! Cheesy












Hope you like it!  Cheesy

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Very nicely done. It looks like you used a running stitch for the Sweeney Todd words and the font looks curvy. Maybe next time you can use the stem stitch. If you make small stitches, the stem stitch goes along curves very nicely. Either way, you did a great job.Smiley

Aww thank you so much for your words!
Yes, I know it'd look better if I use small stitches, I think it was the first time and I didn't really know how to do it. But I think in the words of Mrs.Lovett I did it better!  Grin

And the face of Sweeney Todd has this expression because I draw the eye dark circles with a pencil! But I think it was due more to luck than for my hability!  Tongue

Tomorrow I think I'll show pics of the embroidery of Mrs.Lovett, it's almost finished!  Cheesy
