Just when I think I can't get any more nerdy...awhile back, I did a swap (I've since forgotten the theme) where I embroidered a hoop of  Bo and Daisy Duke for my partner. I got to thinking that I should do something like that for myself, so I give you...Kit Fisto!!



I found Kit's image by searching Yahoo for Star Wars coloring pages. The fabric is some muslin type that I got from AC Moore, along with the embroidery thread.

I used my front door's glass as a projector on a sunny day, taped the picture and the fabric up to it, and traced the image on with a pencil. It's roughly 8.5" x 10".

I love Kit because I thought he was such an interesting character. visually speaking.
 
My next planned embroidery project will be of William Shatner as Captain Kirk. I think once I get enough of these, I might have to turn them into a blanket of some kind.

Nice job rendering all of the details of his face and Jedi robes.  Just "coloring" in the inner garments, eyes, and tendril rings, while leaving everything else as linework, makes for a visually interesting arrangement.  He's not my favorite Jedi Knight, but I agree that Kit Fisto is certainly an intrigueing looking alien with all of those head tendrils (I prefer Twi'leks).

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