Stitches 'n' Hoes

« on: December 14, 2012 02:16:15 PM »

So my friend's mate is a really good illustrator and I contacted her behind his back to see if she'd help me out making him a Christmas present.

She drew this awesome picture of him and I embroidered it, all backstitch.

 The beauty of doing a collaboration like this is that I would never choose a picture with such a busy background normally as I don't like doing repetetive stitching but this looks really nice I think, I hope he loves it!

 Was a bit torn on whether to do the entire thing in black but opted for three different colours for the leaves to make it pop!

Are those skulls hiding in the leaves? Great job. It looks really nice.

I love it! I think going with the colors was a good choice.
It adds a lot of interest to the background.

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