i started this project while sitting at work waiting for a meeting and i'm not really that happy with it.  granted i'm using one tea towel to hone my skills and am embroidering random things on it, but still....this one could have been better.  i drew it myself, and while the drawing is cute, i realized after embroidering it that some of the lines were too close together and some of the lines were wonky.  now i know better for next time Smiley  sorry for the dark picture everyone Smiley

It has PERSONALITY and CHARACTER!  You definitely have a talent for this.  For me, I prefer it when things aren't exactly perfect.

I think he is adorable!   I agree with tryskal - perfection is for machines!  Imperfection is what makes a craft special.

I like her just the way she is! Embroidery always looks a little different than the drawing, but that is exactly what makes it awesome.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Oh, the irony!

She's quite charming!  I totally get noticing all the things you want to be different, but to everyone else she's fetching.

Super way cool! I love the embroidery on it! Great job. It looks great even if some lines are too close together and whatever.

Aww This is sooo cute!  I love it!  I've been wanting to do a little robot like this and I attempted it once and it didn't come out nearly as cute as yours did!
