I made this for PerfectlyBohemian in the recent Jurassic Park Swap.



I knew I wanted to embroider Blue, the velociraptor from the new movies in the franchise, and I knew she needed some flower accents. I pulled some images of the Internet and combined them to get the arrangement I wanted. This is the image I came up with, then I modified it using the "photocopy" artistic effect in PPT before printing and transferring to my fabric.



Here are some WIP shots of the embroidery before I turned it into a mug rug for PB:



This was my first time stitching woven roses, I love the way they look!



Thanks for looking. Smiley

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

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Very cool! Reminds me of a velociraptor t-shirt I've seen that says, "She has style, she has grace, she'll probably eat your face!"

Haha...thanks guys.

Floral laurel... Cheesy

I saw an "eat your face" image when searching for pics to base the pattern on! Blue had a floral crown, which I debated going for, but Mr. Road helped me settle on this design instead.

Though I do love the idea of stitching up something with a floral crown...
