1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Looking for advice for my first project- a FLASH TATTOO on: January 28, 2013 05:51:05 PM
Hey all,
I want to make this for my boyfriend for valentines day because he wanted to get something like this tattooed. I told him he should get something less menacing and he got a nice gypsy so I thought I would surprise him with an embroidered hoop. http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lvwz1exyow1qa70eyo1_500.jpg

Problem is, I haven't done much stitching. I have done cross stitching but not a whole embroidered project like this would be.

Could someone please offer me some advice on how to blend colours, stitches to use in different locations and the order I should do things. I know it will take a long time for a newbie but I have a lot of patience doing crafts. I've looked at some stitches but i don't know where each belongs. For example, a satin stitch would be nice but how would I work with the lettering? Also not sure it would fit the theme to be over the entire picture.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!
