Topic: Paper Embroidery
I needed a card for an upcoming swap on a paper embroidery list and the assigned theme was 'friends'.
In flipping through my file of patterns, I ran across this cutie - printed for free from a blog. I perfectly suited the theme.
I chose a medium brown and a dark orange for the two puppies with black features on both. The noses were designed to be stitches through the whole circle but I though it looked nore dimensional with them only done 3/4 of the way.
I rounded the corners with a punch and added a brown cross-hatch and a solid black for the background. An orange solid was punched with a scallop and tucked under the right side of the image.
