I made this hoop for puzzled-penguin in the monster swap.  She had a great retro comic style picture of Bride of Frankenstein on her pinterest, so I decided to try to make a felt version of it. 

Most of the applique I've done up until now has been pretty much just felt with very little embroidery, and I'm still pretty nervous about making embellishments beyond the felt.  When I got to this point I almost stopped because I was so worried I'd ruin it:

Then I added the mouth (which is a hair misplaced, oops, but I think it still turned out fun!)

And the eyes, etc. I'm really glad I did keep going, since I quite like the finished effect, and of course she needs her scars!!

Feel free to PM me about personal swaps!  Hoopla, TM Patches, mug rugs, magnets, felt, ornaments, etc...

Wonderful pose and expression on Frankenstein's unfortunate bride, and I also dig the mottled orange background.  You did an excellent job on this; the only possible improvement I could see would be adding a dark border around the dress' straps and bust line to make them contrast more with her light skin.

You made A LOT of really great choices I adore.  

I am happy you decided to add more features (it looks like the black threading around the eye might be single strand?)  The lips ROCK.

Small details with felt can be difficult (unless this is just me), so the precise edge on the bustline is spot-on - and the shoulder straps and body posture all are stellar.

I also love you've canted her back on the hoop, while she grips her head dramatically in fear/panic - all echoed by the muted fabric background. Which is vaguely indicative of the anguish she might be feeling in her head?

Clearly you should not be afraid to stitch all over your creations!  And thanks for posting progress pix!
