CATWOMAN

You love embroidery right? I know I do. I’m a newbie though, I mean, really new. I’ve
only made a few things but I’ve fallen in love.

I don’t know about you but since I was a kid I’ve been a fan of Batman the Animated Series. I think Bruce Timm is exceptionally talented. I knew I wanted my first project to be Catwoman in his art style. I really struggled with finding a way to trace her onto the fabric without a lightbox. I really need to make one of those things. I ended up copying the image into a word document, sizing it up to where I needed it to be, and placing the fabric onto the screen of the laptop directly and very, very gently tracing it. Not the best idea, but hey, it worked really well. I wanted to keep it simple and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I already have a very filled board of Pinterest ideas for next projects.

Do you have any pointers for a new embroider?
