Title: Make it Work
Post by: leeska on August 19, 2011 06:12:34 PM
I made this for my partner in the July Birthday swap:

It's Tim Gunn from Project Runway reminding her to "Make it Work"
 Here are some better detail shots:



He's done in back stitch, split stitch and chain stitch, and was my first try at portrait style embroidery.

I've never watched Project Runway but I've heard about all the "Make it work" and it's awesome. You worked it XD

I just so happen to have Project Runway playing in the background right now, so this was an epic coincidence. I think you did a great job embroidering Tim! Your stitching looks so neat. Your partner was really lucky and you so definitely made it work! :)

oh i love project runway, you should try to see if you can catch the australian version as well, its very much the same with different judges obviously, but they have great designers on there as well.

Awww thanks guys.  Your nice comments give me warm fuzzies.  Now, I might have to make one for me - I definitely could use a little encouragement/inspiration in my craft area.  Because there is a point in every project where I think - "this is awful, I am gonna have to scrap this whole thing", but I find that if I just keep going more often then not it turns out pretty good.

I want to hang one right above my chair so Tim is always looking over my work!!!

The tie and handkerchief are nice touches!
