Lush Uptown, a Pillow For a Hunter.
This is just a pillow I made for my favorite Bambi murderer, I mean person who is OK with the fact that meat doesn't come from a grocery store if you really think about it. As soon as I saw this print from Lush Uptown which seems to be a re-release from 2008, knew I had to make him something from it since he wasn't making it out for hunting :(
I thought it would be easy and fun to embroider around all the different paint by number colors with a backstitch.
DONT DO THIS.
I can't say how many hours I spent just doing the bits that I did. It's a hassle, all those little curves made my head and fingers ache. I ended up FMQ more of it than I embroidered because life is short and I didn't want to die while still working on this.
The back is a paper pieced thing I put together, I won't admit how many problems I had with it, but uh... yay it's done! I don't hate it overall, and screw it, maybe nobody ever made him a pillow before and he'll appreciate it ;)
On the brighter side it gave me a chance to order a FQ of all the painter's palette prints which I'm a big fan of!
