Embroidered People: My niece and nephew

Earlier this year my sister and brother-in-law had the cutest set of twins to ever exist. I wanted to try and embroider the two of them in a way I haven’t embroidered people before. Normally I do people in a more abstract and caricature type of way, and I thought this would be difficult to do for a baby. So, I did one of my first realistic style embroideries. In all honesty, it doesn’t completely capture their likeness, but I think that is kind of difficult to capture with babies.
