Hello fellow Craftsters! It has been awhile since I have created anything and I'm on staycation and recovering from a recent surgery. So, basically I'm bored out of my mind.

As most of you may know, The Game of Thrones is soon to air and my dad LOVES that series (tv and books) and decided to embroider his favorite house coat of arms/logo (which is Stark, btw). I know something similar has been done, and I say similar because the one that was made before mine is like way better (and I have no patience to stitch EVERYTHING in) not to mention that it is also inspiration for this creation.

I was limited on supplies because most of my fabric stash has a cutesy design on it and I need some plain white fabric, the first thing I found was a towel! So I started on that.



This is the back of the towel:



It is all in back stitch. I wanted clean lines and tried to make the logo as simple as possible (no expert here). I was able to finish it in the first 2 Star Wars movies and about 5 1/2 episodes of The Dresden Files, which is in no time for me, I barely finish anything I start.

I folded it into the towel form it's suppose to be and you can only see the middle of the work (duh, didn't even cross my mind until I was too far in to go back). I've decided to create a wall hanging from it using the original dish towel and cutting out dowel holes for it and getting a nice fancy hanger for it. Sorry for all of my rambling! Comments and critiques welcome!

Nicely done  Cheesy
I feel like a Stark myself at the moment, winter isn't leaving my little corner of the world!

That's great! Makes me wish I had a towel with each house on it... Yet I would never use them, and kill anyone who did. You did an awesome job!

This is awesome! Thanks for showing the back as well, I always like to have a nosy at the back of people's work.
