I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Challenge? Yes, it was. This project began so smoothly, with an idea that happened immediately, and then all went to pot! The design was drawn on my fabric in a disappearing ink pen (no problem) and I got to work. About 1/4 in to the embroidery, I had to set it aside for a while, and that's when I learned the devastating effects of humidity. The flipping pattern disappeared. Poof. But I powered on, because poor Marilyn was headless and that was just unacceptable. Here's the result, complete with a supposed tattoo gun.

My immediate thought on the pattern was that it looked like tattoo flash and so I ran with it.
