[embroidery] Heavy Metal Guitar

I quickly embroidered a new hankie for Dollar:

Embroidered guitar

I used some basic back-stitching and french knots. The design came from an iron-on transfer from the Sublime Stitching Craft Pad. I have another one ready to start- a cassette tape and I'll add the name of his band onto the label area in the design.

Nice stitching!

I love this and the cassette hanky --what do you use for hanky blanks, or do you sew/hem them from scratch?

iliana, i order tea towels from the 'sublime stitching' website. they were huge, so i did cut them in half and hem them (to be more hanky sized). they are a nice, heavy-ish weight that get softer with every wash.
