Sugar Skull In-Progress

The sugar skull was one of my first embroidery projects. This was later turned into a pin that I gave to a friend who is obsessed with skulls. I had captured the step-by-step with my computer camera–forgive the low resolution–and thought it would be nice to share, especially with those just learning to stitch (backstitch is your best friend). I started by making a cardboard patten of the basic skull shape, tracing it onto the felt, and from there, it was just drawing in the details and attempting  symmetry (fail, btw).
