Look what my mommy stitched for me when I was a baby...
If my mother hadn't made this, I'd be a little less restrained when I asked WHAT IS UP WITH THOSE EYES?! That has got to be the poster child for creepy embroidered babies.
I'm not good with faces myself.
Sublime Stitching has a tutorial on how to stitch small facial features with lots of tips on which stitches and how many threads to use. It's the only one I've found that's for flat embroidery and not dolls. Now I'm thinking I should just trace some faces and play around with the details instead of letting them make or break an entire block.
Do you have trouble with faces? Or some good tips for me?
