This piece is pretty small- it hangs in a 4″ hoop. I had to use various sizes of embroidery floss to get the detail, ranging from six strands to two strands.
Recently I made my second Simpsons embroidery. This time around I chose to do Bart.
I put the design on the fabric using a water soluble pen, and then colored it in with crayon. I then outlined the piece with black embroidery floss. I also painted the hoop black.
This piece is also up for sale in the shop!
This one is also in a 3″ hoop painted black, on the same white linen as the pizza slice. For this piece I filled it in completely using a split stitch and seed stitch.

I made this cute little slice of piece to go into this cute little (3″!) hoop. I used linen for the fabric, and painted the hoop black. I tried to keep it pretty simple, because I guess that has been my thing lately.
This piece is in a 3″ wooden embroidery hoop. See more of it in the store.

To make this I hand drilled the holes to embroider through, and then I painted it using acrylic paint. It hangs on the wall using twine.
This piece was really quite fun- and drilling through the wood is a good stress relief! My next pieces I plan to do using this technique is on ceramic plates, and deer bones. I think it could look really interesting!
