I embroidered this Ampharos a while ago. It was actually the first one I did when coming home from college. I was going to make it into a drawstring bag, but then I had an idea about sewing around the embroidery before putting it in the hoop. And this is what came out of that idea!
My plan is to start offering this style as an option with custom hoops. It was a lot of fun and I REALLY like the result, but it was a fair amount of work. I think it was worth it though. This one isn’t going in the shop, as Ampharos is my absolute favorite and I just can’t part with him. But I should be doing more!
The oddish is finished!!! I posted a progress photo early yesterday and this is the final result. It was super fast, I know, but that’s what happens when you’re binging three shows at once. I was going back and forth between Bones, Friends and Supernatural, making full use of my sister’s netflix subscription. Anyway, many hours went into this guy, even though it seemed so quick. Two full days, actually. He’s posted in the shop if you’re interested! Just click the link above the images. And let me know if you have any commissions or even suggestions as to what I should do next. The ask box is always open.
