Leprechaun Embroidery Project - Part Four



I have an update to share on my leprechaun stitching.  I have filled in the pot of gold, his hair and beard and am making progress on his outfit.   I am glad to be past all the metallic thread stitching!  I even added some gold on his jacket buttons.


I am wondering about the color I will use for jacket...I don't think I want him to be in all green.  


I am using rows of split stitch on the pants, I hope that will look good - it is starting to resemble green corduroy! 

I have some other St. Patrick's day stitching - involving these three floss colors again:



I think they will work perfectly.

It is beautiful. I think dark blue jacket would be great with those gold buttons :)

He's great fun. I think a lovely strong blue would be great for the jacket.

Kim said...

Annette - Thank you!
Magdor - Thank you :) That is a wonderful idea. I am really glad I did the buttons in gold!
Ligia - Obrigado! Cogumelos são divertidas de se desenhar. Tenha uma ótima semana :)
Jules - Thank you! Yes I love the idea of blue.

Darlene said...

yes, I think a strong blue would set it off just right.

I love how it is coming along and the pants do resemble corduroy! :-)

Kim said...

Darlene - Yes I think blue would be great. I am also trying a deep purple. I can't wait to finish this!

Darlene said...

oh, a deep purple...both sound wonderful. I'm glad it's you who has to decide! :-)

Kim said...

Darlene - Lol! I hope I can choose, they both look good with the gold too :)

Gorgeous work. What stitch did you user for the lettering? The texture is amazing

Kim said...

JillianFunkPFT - Thank you! Do you mean the lettering "Liam" on the cowboy pillow? I used the back stitch and I did it in rows. I used perle cotton floss too and I think that really contributed to the beautiful texture.
