UPDATE: Hoop has arrived safely!  Hooray!!!

I made this hoop for sammylouise40 in the Vikings, Pirates, and Ninjas Rd 2 Swap. Sadly, it seems to have gone missing in the mail, which really bums me out because I spent AAAAAGES on it.  

Here's the hoop:


The one part I'm not quite happy about is the face... I moved the eyes around so many times but just couldn't seem to get them to look any less wonky than that... Still though, overall I really like how it turned out. Smiley (And I have strabismus myself, so wonky eyes aren't exactly the end of the world!)

Here are a bunch of progress shots:

There were so many little pieces, and I really had to stop and consider a lot before I sewed each piece down, because it was a bit confusing to plan which pieces needed to overlap with which.




As usual, I kinda wanted to stop at that point, because doing the faces always really intimidates me, but also as usual I'm glad I continued.  I do like minimalist silhouettes and stuff, but she just didn't seem finished without the face. And if anything, the fact that the face wasn't perfect (what I was scared of), but still cute just reinforced the idea that I should keep going - even imperfect embroidery can add a lot! XD

Wonderful design.

I really like the background fabric especially; there is a subtle little shimmer in the back like the gold is light reflecting off the sword. I love the detail in her hair too, all those cuts make it look like the wind is blowing.

Truly a beautiful piece!

I love this piece. I saw it in the swap and glad to see you post it here. The face turned out well so that has to be encouraging. It's a great hoop.

Thanks! 

I've used this fabric once before for another hoop, and am pretty bummed that I'm almost out of it now.  It's pretty enough to add a lot to the overall effect, but subtle enough not to detract from the main design.
