For my partner on the hoopla swap!

The girl was fairly easy, though it was my first time doing loose bits on a hoop, but the wording... this was the third attempt at it, and I finally just went with paper.  It gave me the look closest to what was in my head, though it felt weird... but I guess you don't normally wash a hoop, anyway, right?  Still, that whole "sewing paper" thing is weird to me.  I like it when other people do it, I just... feel wrong.

I drew the girl out, then made copies and cut out layers of pieces and embroidered them on.  I'm not great at embroidery, but I'm slowly learning!



And a close-up of her hair (my favorite part):

And I get you about the sewing paper thing. It feels wrong but looks right! You made a great call!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
