Pirate Girrrrrrl

Remember I told you I was going to pick up embroidery? Well in the spirit of that resolution I made her.

She's based on my friend's tattoo. I actually had a picture of the tattoo on my compurer, then I pressed the white fabric against my screen and draw the pic with a pencil. Simple isn't it.

I used just satin stitch and backstitch on her. The back of the embroidery is kind of a mess. And note to self: next time you do something similar it might be a good idea trying to color it in first and then add the outline.

I gave the pirate girl to my friend as a "thank you for existing" present. And she loved it!
