The red balloon, 2012

First real attempt at embroidery. Free handed everything, made a funky balloon and puckered the fabric unfortunately. Still pretty happy with how it turned out.

Inspired by this picture:

I really loved the way it looked at all stages, but I wanted to practice filling and working with direction so I just kept going. I definitely need more practice with embroidery.
