Embroidered Skeleton Hand


Happy Thursday, everyone!

The third piece that I have to share on my hand dyed fabric (using tea) is a skeleton hand. This piece is pretty dainty- it is done in a 4″ hoop, using three stands of embroidery floss. Usually floss comes in six strands, but you can peel away strands to make thinner lines. Since this piece was so small, I decided to do three stands for the entire hand.

I’d like to do more body/anatomy pieces. I was thinking of doing an image of a full eye- from the side. Any thoughts on what else I should do?
