stitched this handsome gentleman on to a canvas bag for hgddm for the latest round of IYP.



i had a hard time deciding how to do his eyes, but finally settled on satin stitching.  the rest is back stitch except for his little cuff links, which are french knots.  the pattern is from Urban Threads, isn't he cute?



here's a terrible photo of the whole bag for size reference Wink


thanks for looking!   Grin

Ooh, I love his eyes. They came out great! What a lucky lady to have such a gentleman to accompany her on her travels.
