Well, Jexxi...you are the gal to do it. Ask smeddley if she will allow you to borrow them? And be sure to make her one, too  Grin I will bet she would love that. What a great flattery of sharing art. I agree, those would be wonderful stitched. The ink is wonderful, too. But hoopla is a great idea to incorporate as well. I keep coming back to this thread. The freedom, and wonderful swirls are comforting.  Wink

dulcet - ooooh, all good ideas!  I definitely need to make more, now - maybe I can make a bunch of notecards (credit where it's due, that was alwaysinmyroom's suggestion from the craftalong post!)

Ratfinkz - good ideas - I'm thinking hearts and Valentine's cards, and if I ever get up the energy, I could totally do a tree with swirly shading (a friend of mine did a panda like that and oh my goodness it was amazing!)

bushbaby, jexxican - if you want to stitch one up, feel free!  I don't have the talent for embroidery, only cross-stitch, and that's rather counter to the form of the flowiness!

And thanks everyone, for your kind words!  I love posting here, everyone is so nice and supportive!  Cheesy

Nope. If you can cross stitch...you could stitch these up. A tiney-er pointyer-er needle than your darners...thiner embroidery thread. Say, two strands, maybe three for your heavy outlines. Heavy linen, or a stiff cotton/muslin for fabric? Canvas works good, too. Bind it firmly in the hoop. Give it a go. I bet you could do it.  Grin {sorry..don't think I spelled all that right...but I think you get the picture}

When you get time...give it a go. You have great ideas, and are very artistic. There are wash away stabalizers to back the fabric with, if you are working with the thinner linen, or cottons. After you stitch, you just wash them off. They also make a tear away backing. That one you don't have to remove, necessarilly. Unless you want a softer feel to your project. They are easy to stitch through. "Sew Ease" is a fun oil for your needles and thread. Har, har...they won't tangle  Cheesy Give it a shot. I will bet you rock your own socks off.

Oh thanks, T. You are too kind.

And I bet these would translate into X stitch as well. There are programs you can use to make photos into knitting or X stitch patterns. You would lose a bit of the softness of the curves but I still think it would be rad.

I don't know if anyone's mentioned the fact that these would make some beautiful tattoos! They are awesome as they are, but the clean swirly patterns are perfect tattoo material I think Smiley

Great idea. Something small on an ankle, or butt cheek.

She needs to get on Lulu, and craft a book and sell these designs. I will PM and give her that idea. Lulu.com. They take a small percentage, and only charge you when they print a book and send. NO INVENTORY. And they credit you on PayPal. They handle the administrative tasks, and print your book. I think last I checked, they were at only 1.5%...so just add that to your pricing as a markup.
