I had so much fun making the Pigeon hoop that I wanted to make another! It’s my first time participating in the Illustration Stitch A Long. For Pigeon the embroidery is only to attach the felt, but for this Totoro hoop I used it to add some additional detail for the mouth and whiskers. I really love doing these hoops and want to keep experimenting with using more embroidery details.
The free choice illustrator stitch a long is going until the end of September and I’m hoping to create at least one other piece before then. Bridgeen Gillespie from Cherry and Cinnamon actually did a Totoro for this too! You can see her’s here.
