Bringing up Baby Embroidery

Katherine Hepburn Embroidery

I am finally posting my piece for the Phat Quarter Movie Swap! My partner was Bill the Girl and I was so excited to hear she loved old movies and especially Katherine Hepburn :)

Maureen suggested Bringing up Baby and when I looked it up I knew I had to embroider a scene from it!

This was so exciting to embroider because since the image is in black and white I had no influence from the original picture it was completely up to me to make this image come to life in color!

The movie cover is amazing:



After Maureen sketched it out for me I began stitching and stitch by stitch it came along:

I finally finished it a little late but I like the way it came out :)

I loved stitching this up even though the deadline was a little stressful, I did it! Bill now has it in her possession and I was so happy to hear that she liked it ;)
