Rainbow poodle

Just because, I thought I would try hand embroidering a poodle.
I googled images and found this image with no attribution. I would credit the artist but cannot find even the image on google again!! Where does stuff go?
I printed it out and enlarged it to 6 inches.
Traced it on some sparkly white fabric with my silver prisma color pencil. Stretched it on a hoop and got ready to play.





This thread is perle cotton from ArtFabric. They hand dye in luscious colors on many weights of thread. This is fairly thick. I save old spools and wrap the hanks of embroidery threads on them to make using them easier.
Can you see the pretty sparkles in the white fabric?
Okay, I feel I've gotten control of outline stitch. I wanted to break into chain stitch as it's pretty with this thread. Or French knots. Now what to do with this??

  7. Love the poodle pattern and the rainbow thread really makes the whole thing pop. Your hand stitching is great. There are some many things to make with it, I would frame it in the hoop, maybe add some lace trim and hang it on the wall, perhaps near Cole's bed.

  16. This is so fun! I love the sparkles and the fun poodle and the rainbow perle cotton! I think I'd be tempted to just hoop it and hang it on the wall.
