I embroidered this lovely lady to donate to my local arts center, who is having a fun 50s themed benefit. My embroidery will be an item in their silent auction. It took me forever so i hope it fetches a good price! I had a little problem with the fabric puckering a bit in one spot, and now when i look at this that is ALL i notice. Grrrrrrr! But maybe thats just me being anal, hopefully not many people will notice....



Oh and i got the stencil image from a google search for Marilyn Monroe.




thanks for looking!

Wow! I can't even see the stitching. Great job and don't worry. As popular as Marilyn Monroe is, I'm sure it will fetch a good price.Smiley

I didn't even notice. I had to look at it several times because I thought you cut it out with felt. It turned out amazing!

i know, i think i need a new camera, or just some better photography skills! you can never see the details of the stitching in my pics. kind of frustrating when you put so much time into your work, then you cant get a decent pic to show it off Sad   but at least in person you can tell . even my boyfriend took a look at it after i had been stitching for hours and said- woah, thats a lot of stitches.......    haha!

I suck at taking pictures but this is seriously awesome. No pucker at all, that's why I thought it was felt. The lines and stitching are so clean. Seriously awesome stitching! Her dress/clothing part is rad.
