I don't remember when I started it, but let's just say it wasn't stitched in a day. I had to include an "in progress" shot 'cos the piece just lookes way cooler in it. The awesome pattern is from Urban Threads.



I used split stitch, back stitch and satin stitch on it. I framed the finished piece and gave it to my friends who are a couple. They both have dia de los muertos style tattoos so I figured it would be fitting.

How did you transfer the image to your fabric? I always mess up tracing with tracing pen! Your out line looks perfect!
