A little finished embroidery. I bought this fab book of transfers, it a bit of a bargain as you get quite a few patterns and most of them are very cool. Some are very detailed though so would take a long time to stitch. The pastel colours on the skull are from sublime stitching floss- I am pretty pleased with my colour choices on this one.
I thought I'd share some sketches I have been doing- these are destined for embroidery- they will be framed in a tooth/tusk shape as you can see on the whale. I want them to look like scrimshaw, I'm thinking probably a tusk shaped tea dyed cotton with the embroidery on, which will then be appliqued onto a dark (navy) background or possibly just a large piece of cotton lightly tea stained with a darker tea stain applied with a brush around the tusk.
