I'm in a round-robin tea towel swap with some friends and have decided to do variations on a theme, that theme being "Bigfoot."  This is my second in the series. (the first is here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=407773.0)



An angle shot to show some of the texture:



The little birdie who laid the big egg (that's why it's eye is popping a bit).



A close up of the pouting that got him into this situation:



I used satin, split, and long and short stitch, one french knot and some whatever-it-takes stitch.

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

Your Bigfoots (Bigfeet?) just get better and better. This face is even more detailed than the other one, and that egg in his beard is funny. Another triumph in your series.

Thanks!  The next one will be challenging as the towel it goes on is quite delicate.  For the record, I prefer "Bigfoots."  Wink
