I finally finished my craft category entry for the TonnerCon 2012 competition! Except, alas, I started it about three weeks later than I should have, so it wasn't close to finished in time. All the same, here it is, un-ironed and un-framed, and 100% hand-stitched:
I added gold metallic thread to the brown outlines of the hair, which sparkles nicely, but the camera didn't pick that up. This exercise served to remind me of why I hate to work with metallic thread, as it is evil and uncooperative. But sparkly, and that forgives all.
