so i wasnt really sure if this should go in clothing, embroidery, or reconstructed but i settled on here. anyway i bought this skirt at work (value village woo!) for $2 but thought it was really boring so during the oscars i embroidered this swallow on it. it took around 4 hours. i think it looks really great and jazzes it up a bit. hope you like it.

Can I ask where you got the picture of the swallow from? Or did you draw it freehand?
and what kind of stitch did you use?

Also, if you are a fan of the iron-on embroidery patterns, i know there are swallows in one of Jenny Hart's Sublime Stitching things.
