Just finished this for my sister and framed it. No amount of ironing could get those wrinkles out, probably because the fabric is cheap.



Embroidery on cotton, four and six strands used throughout, all done with Sublime Stitching's new flosses.

I've found putting a good amount of tension on the fabric when you mount it (but be sure to get the tension even all over) is the best way to reduce wrinkles Smiley

really beautifully done satin stitch (? that's what it looks like in the photo, sorry if it's not - but looks great!)

I love Hyperbole and a Half, and that is really well done!  I can't seem to get the hang of embroidery, and your stitches are perfect!

This is really awesome! I've been stitching a collection of comic hoopla, and Hyperbole and a Half has been on my list for a while. I like the way you did this one!

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?
