Self portrait in thread on cardboard. It's for the beginnings of a computer class assignment where we have to do a magazine spread mock up with a self portrait and bio.The magazine I'm using is going to be d.i.y. and crafting related and my self portrait medium is supposed to reflect that some how. Also, text is annoying to embroider when it's so small. Lesson learned for next time. My mistakes are probably painfully obvious to most of you. I'm not exactly seasoned at this sort of thing. It was loads of fun though, but it's such a pain when I made a mistake and had to figure out some way to cover up the hole in the cardboard

Wow! That is really well done! I would think it would be difficult to embroider on cardboard (not very forgiving). Your portrait turned out so well! I really like it!!

Oh man, there are tons! I'm probably overcrtical, but if you're looking at the actual thing close up, you can see all these tiny little holes and knots and things. And the spots where I had to change direction to cover up something! Those are the worst!
