I found this really cute picture of max the other day in the image reproduction techniques category here on craftster, and fell in love.


So I sketched it in my sketch book, and traced it onto wax paper. It was the most obnoxious process because when I ripped the paper out I was afraid I'd rip out the stitches. I had no idea what I was doing because I had never tried embroidering before and was afraid it would come out lame. I am actually pretty happy with how it turned out. It looks a little shaky and weird, but it looks a lot better in person.

I might go over the crown again, and some other parts. But this is what I have for now. Also, my friend cleaned my room the other day and I don't know what she did with my camera. So the quality is awful because it's from my phone.

C&C appreciated!!  Smiley

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

Thank you both so much!

Right after I finished this I found a bunch of really awesome videos of how to embroider and I found out I had been doing the completely wrong stitches. So next time will be so much better!
