Okie dokie...so I've posted about my fella's daughter wanting to participate in swaps and I've been doing personal swaps with her.  Dewshinesdopp was generous enough to volunteer for a personal swap and we set things in motion for the swap.  All has been sent and received so it is safe to post  Grin

Little Miss just turned 14 and I've been teaching her different crafts for some time.  From the list Dewshinesdopp provided for the swap she chose to stitch up a Fineas & Ferb hoop...

She painted the fabric and used backstitch & satin stitch, painted the hoop and finished up the back of the hoop with some felt and cute Thank you in sequence.  I just happen to think she did an excellent job.

As an extra little thank you we did some pinterest stalking of Dewshinesdopp and I stitched something up for her as well.  I must say that I have wanted to stich up a Jose Pulido Star Wars Day of the Dead design for a looooooong time, so this was great for me  Wink

I used backstitch, a little satin stich and split stitch.

I bought some more of the "spacey" fabric and plan to stitch up more Jose Pulido's and frame them for my nephew.

Thank you so much Dewshinesdopp!!!  I will post a pic of the hoop you so kindly stitched up for the swap asap...it happens to be on another memory card, which of course is at home right now.

These are absolutely great. Next time we have a kids swap, make sure you sign up! You both are extremely talented!

How did she create Phineas and Ferb? Was it from a print off or coloring page? The design is so exact. What fabric did she use and what types of stitches did she use for the clothing? Seriously, this is so impressive.

She did a great job on Phineas and Ferb! They look so accurate! Great job!

Thank you both! It was really fun because it was my first "big" swap. Thanks again!  Grin Cheesy

And oh yea I made the Phineas and ferb by printing a picture and tracing it just using the window and sun light then I just went for it. The clothes are not really a specific stich I know your not really suppose to do that but hey whatever its kind of my version of satin stich but I just filled in the blanks. And painted in the big parts and its just normal fabric from walmart nothing special.

You (and she) are so very welcome!  I was super spoiled, and super surprised by getting 2 awesome hoops.   I enjoyed the swap very much.
