Hello, it has been a long time since I had a project that I was happy enough with to share here.

I wanted a patch for my bag of the PPDC Ranger logo from my most favorite movie ever Pacific Rim.

I started out with painting the logo on some stiffened crinoline/huckcloth material with acrylic paints. I have had bad experiances with Sharpie transferring onto the threads because of my sweaty fingers in the past.

I filled in with satin stitch, three strands.

Then finished the details and borders with stem stitch.

I can't decide if I want this on my bag or on a khaki jacket for a little informal cosplay. Thanks for looking!

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

Nice stitching! It looks great. I love big robot and monster movies so this is just perfect!
