Snail’s Pace Embroidery
You couldn’t wait until I was done with my Wonder Woman shirt to change outfits?
To be fair, I embroider at roughly the same speed that grass grows or paint dries, and it didn’t help that I had a few weeks of seven-days-a-week-plus-driving work in there. I now understand why it is that Mary Corbett of Needle and Thread can post so much gorgeous embroidery: she’s MAD fast.
This is all I’ve got so far:
I’ve got the entire outline of the chest emblem stitched at least once. On the left side (of the picture) there’s two rows of split stitch; on the right, only one. You can definitely see the difference.
I’m deeply tempted to make it even thicker by adding a third row… but then I may not finish the shirt before the next ice age descends.
I still haven’t decided if I’m going to leave the shirt with the Wonder Woman costume as an outline, a suggestion, or if I’ll fill in some parts with decorative stitching. I think I need to check out a few stitch dictionaries before I decide.
