Anyway, another quick post just to say I finished something.
This is the other part of the mugs and monsters swap... A cute little bat embroidery hoop.
I hate embroidery. I never know why I do it. It's slow, and it's fiddly and while the results usually look pretty good, I really don't have the patience for it.
This took me weeks, and it still didn't come out how I'd planned, because I decided to leave it as line art rather than shade it (a. for time and b. because I love the fabric)
The bat pattern is from Urban Threads, which is a dangerous website for someone who likes cute things, but hates embroidery. I own many patterns that I'm probably never going to stitch up. I'm just like that.
The fabric is Cotton and Steel "Boo".
I did a quick pyrography job on the hoop, and backed it with felt.
The parcel has been received, apparently. Mostly I'm just glad to be done with it!
