I am doing a tea towel swap with some friends.  I decided to do variations on a theme with that theme being Bigfoot.  Here is my latest: Hello Bigfoot.  Most of the others are also posted here on craftster.



Another angle to see some of the textures.  I used split stitch for the face and beard and a bastardized turkey stitch for the kitty hat.  The hat ties are braided.



And because I think it's funny to say "Pam's backside is a hot mess" I am including the photo of the back which for some reason was extra chaotic.  Perhaps it's from stitching with dogs wrasslin on the same couch.



I was the last to stitch on her towel, so she is the second to receive her completed project!  This was supposed to be a "spring fling" swap, but now we've passed through spring, summer, autumn and on into winter.  I have one more to stitch and I think there are only a few more to stitch on mine.

YEA! I knew 2013 is going to be a good year the minute I saw it had wrought a new bigfoot. I think the thing that makes this one is those big red lips, but the stitching on the hat is marvelous. I can just see him with his cave done up with a Hello Kitty theme. What a hoot! Thanks for sharing.  Smiley

Thanks so much!  The last towel will be on its way to me in the next couple days, so I can start 2013 by finishing my part of this Tea Towel Swap Run Rampant.

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