Done and Done!

Hurray!  I finished my first embroidery project!  Not to toot my own horn, but it came out pretty good.

Hey baby!

Yummy.

Puffy eye balls.

After finishing filling in the needles and eyes and nose, I felt it still looked a bit empty though.  So I filled in the skull.  And what was I going to do with this bad guy anyway?  I stitched it on the corner of the white material so I felt like my only option was to turn it into a patch.  So I cut him out.  Then what?  I made a draw string project bag out of green material my sister didn't want anymore.

So here is his debut!

I have a cool pocket inside too!

Handsome, ain't he?

Crooked needles.

Not too shabby!

I was very surprised at how quickly filling in the skull went.  I really thought it was going to be a big ordeal.
Through out this piece something was bothering me about this skull boy.  And then I saw it.  One cheekbone is higher than the other, the nose is too far to the left, and one eye is bigger than the other!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I redrew him and he's ready to be stitched again.  Crooked guy was given to my friend (who I knew would appreciate it).  And now I have time to finish that navy grocery bag!  Hurrah!

  1. Glad to see you joined Lesser Known Skeins my group on Ravelry.
    I love your skull bag. I just finished caps for my daughter and granddaughter with a skull pattern around them. I will post them on my blog soon.
