So I have been on a mad dash to get some new cool projects done as I have been invited to set up a table at the Punk Swap Meet here in Sacramento next month.

Aside from being a lifelong Joker fan I, like most everyone else, loved Heath Ledger in the Dark Night. I created this pattern based on an image I found on google. It's got close to 2500 stitches and took two days short of two weeks. I don't know how much actual time, though.

My iron broke so I smoothed it with the bottom of a hot pan (it's all classy over here) and will properly finish/frame it in the next couple weeks before the swap meet.

Comments and criticisms are always welcome. Thanks for looking!

Ooh, that is awesome, coming from a lifelong Batman fan. (Though I admit that we may've had a rough patch a while back while he was being a dick to Dick Grayson.)
The Joker was always such an interesting villain, even if I'm partial to Poison Ivy. ♥

I've been wanting to do a pic like this for a long time but haven't found an image that would convert like I want it to. Excellent designing and stitiching. *thumbs up*

Thanks for the support, everyone. Given the source material/subject, I am gonna assume "creepy" is a good thing  Wink

At least that's where I am going with it.

Wow! This is fab. I've been reading your blog, but I just had to comment on this. It's amazing. I'm a Batman fanatic, and I about fell over when I saw this. (And when I say fanatic, I mean Me + Batman = You + Star Wars) Cheesy

I want it. Care to share the pattern? Cheesy
