Phat Quarter Swap!

Here is the piece I made for Joe Degand III for the Phat Quarter movies swap.  I worked from a black and white still from A New Hope.  It's also my first foray into applique.

Swap Piece

It was a blast to make and I learned a lot about embroidery, applique, and why I shouldn't ever finish pieces off that way again.

Now, I'm thinking about how I'd change my process for a second movie still-inspired piece.

Han Solo encased in carbonite, anyone?.
