My best friend is a hard-working public defender but loves makeup more than any self-respecting lawyer should. I made her this towel to clean her brushes on so her courtroom can always sparkle! She was pretty stoked about the gift.

The "makeup" is cross-stitching in variegated pink thread and the "whore" is free-handed back/seed stitching (sorry for the lousy pic).  I would've loved to use my Q-snaps for this but the towel fabric was just too thick.

The lipstick tube is done in the Sublime Stitching metallic silver thread and as per their claims it was pretty snag-free!  I surrounded the piece with some of my favorite products as I have to admit, I'm a bit of a makeup whore myself...

That is so awesome! Did I miss it-where did you find the pattern? Did you make it yourself? The lipstick is the best!
