Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!
So....I was going to wait to reveal the project I'm about to show you until the recipient has, er, received it. But I am just too gosh darned excited to do that! I want to share it with you NOW!!!
And so, without further ado, I present to you...
I've mentioned this project before, both here and here. I still am not ready to reveal who this is for...and I haven't even gotten it in the mail yet. And I don't want to ruin the surprise. (Oh goodness, I hope I don't ruin anything by talking about it here!) But I am not one who can sit on a surprise for very long, so I am taking a chance and sharing these pics with you.
But first, lemme give you some info on this piece. It was designed by the talented Ellia Hill, aka greenbeanbaby. Ellia amazes me with her skill! I have purchased a few items from Ellia's etsy, and I can't believe how much time, thought, and detail go into each piece.
Anywho, the pattern was not intended for embroidery, but rather for a cut paper art tutorial. But since I am better with needle & thread than an x-acto knife, I decided to embroider the pattern instead.
I am pretty pleased with the results. :)
Look at the sweet little mouth:
The hair was done with a split stitch, both for outlining and filling:
I'm pretty crazy about the little dolly. Isn't she cute?
Here are some more pics for you to enjoy. :)
So there you have it! This was so fun to stitch. I am a little sad that it's all done, even though I am relieved 'cause now I can send it out to a very deserving person. But, as always, I have tons of stuff in the works, so I will be back sooner or later with more stitchy goodness to share with you. Until then...
