Hey all,

I have been embroidering for a few years now, mostly based on patterns of my own devising and freehand designs...

The cover of the Zombies' album Odessey and Oracle is just screaming to be turned into a large scale tapestry-like piece for hanging. It's got lots of chunks of the same colors, but I'm a little bit worried about the people/faces looking realistic. Does anyone have suggestions of getting this project started? (I was thinking lots and lots of tracing paper; using wax pencil/transfer paper in "layers")

Thanks!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Layers are definitely good. Maybe like a crazy quilt? For the faces, you could use sulky stabilizer to draw on and stitch over.
