I made these for elvissatx for the Set of Tea Towels Swap. I used stem stitch, satin stitch, seed stitch, and a little back stitching. Her kitchen is done in bright pink, lime, and turquoise so I stuck with those colors. I was originally going to do 3 different caricatures of Elvis but they weren't feeling like a set so I went with the color variations instead.

Thank you! I've worked really hard on it! These towels really helped me improve too. I posted them in the order I made them, pink, lime, then turquoise and I think you can see the improvement. I can anyway, especially on the bit of satin stitch above the nose. I got really fast too!

Those are brilliant. A great caricature of Elvis as well.
And that satin stitch is indeed very impressive.

Do you take commissions? One of those on a tie - or a white jumpsuit - would look awesome.  Grin
