I've always wanted to try portrait embroidery but deemed it to be impossible. Today
however, armed with a little tracing paper and determination decided to
give it a try. It was alot simpler than I imagined and it used a simple
straight stitch with 2 ply of 310 DMC thread. At
first I wanted to stitch a picture of my cat, Buddy. But after many
failed photo attempts I turned to another Buddy, Buddy Holly of course. If you're interested in a future tutorial on portrait embroidery please let me know in the comments.
