Firefly Flour Sack Towels

Firefly embroidered towels. 

What do you do for a couple of Joss Whedon fans who are getting married?  Embroider some Firefly-themed flour sack towels, of course.

"No power in the 'verse can stop you!" 

I chose the quote "No power in the 'verse can stop you" because it felt like a better thematic choice than "big damn heroes."

I decided against "I can kill you with my mind" for similar reasons.

The highlight of this project was embroidering a line drawing of Serenity.  Having only seen a few episodes of the Firefly, I didn't trust myself to accurately render something from screenshots (what if I didn't know what that one panel actually did, and I omitted it, and it was CRUCIAL to the ship's structural integrity?!) so I decided to trace an image I found online.

Too bad my printer didn't have any have any ink...but have you ever had an idea that (to quote Homer Simpson) is "stupid... LIKE A FOX!!"

Oh Yeah 

Oh, yeah.  I won't make a habit of this.

Serenity: Engine Detail 

In conclusion: I think my friends will like them. I like my friends, so this is a good thing.
