How did you make the hooves?  They look great.

Here's the stuff I made for spikefan:

They look fantastic!  Your partner's very lucky.
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dr. Horrible Embroidery Triptych on: September 27, 2012 08:45:15 AM
Now that she's received it, I can post this project I made for my partner in the Whedonverse swap - a Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog embroidery triptych, with the three main characters and a quote from the show.  It's my first time doing a project like this; I've done cross stitch before, but that's about the limit of my embroidery experience.  This was originally meant to be mostly cross stitch, but I decided it would look better done a different way.

The silhouettes are cut out of vinyl and stitched down, then I embroidered around them.  I drew the words by hand on graph paper and transferred them to the fabric with transfer paper (which for the record, is not super effective on aida cloth - next time I'm using different fabric).  The lettering turned out surprisingly well, I was impressed with myself for how perfect it looked - then I mounted them in the frames and they got kinda weirdly stretched and don't look as straight anymore; I wish I'd done that part of it a little differently.  All in all though, I'm pretty proud of how this turned out.  And I want to make another one for myself!

Shots of each panel individually:

The design is based on this artwork (which sadly I do not know the source for):

Comments and crits welcome as always!

That's so cool!  Great idea.

Also, I like that the jar says "Firefly" in a font that's so close to the show's logo.

Check it out y'all, here's my Firefly themed swap package from our fabulous organizer, spikefan!  Everything is so awesome, I was literally squeeing while I opened the package.

First of all, my very own Jayne hat!  I've been wanting one of these babies for a long time. ^_^  And it's just in time for my first autumn in Canada!
Can you tell I'm excited about this hat?

She also made me a Jayne hoop:

And a framed cross stitch with one of my favorite quotes from the show:

Unfortunately, the tissue paper she wrapped the items in stuck to the paint on the frame, so I may have to repaint it.  It'll be going up on the wall today regardless.

The other item is a buckled leather wrist band that's like the one Jayne wears on the show.  So cool!  I'll have to put it on my husband later and take some action shots.

Thank you so much spikefan!!  I absolutely love everything, you're an amazing swap partner.
