embroidered faces






a few years ago on the everyday matters yahoo group, there was a suggestion about making a one inch drawing everday. someone posted a grid of 30 one inch squares. so everyday, i drew a face of someone who came into the shop where i was working. some of the faces really charmed me. i scanned them, blew them up to 2" each and printed them on fabric. then i embroidered over the drawn lines. still have never figured out what to do with them. once they were matted at put into a show. but now i think i'd like to stitch them on a pocket or bag. any ideas?

I'm sewing patches similar in size onto my jean jacket... they look really cool next to the denim! There is a picture on my blog.

These faces are awesome!

It would look really cool to have a bunch of these stitched up together for a great piece of art for the wall. They're wonderful.

These are awesome! I think the would look great in a number of different applications. But if they were mine, I think I would have them matted and framed together (in one frame), but with a window cut into the mat for each face.
