Ever since I saw this embroidery pattern I knew I had to stitch it! The hundreds of tiny stitches in the hat of the mushroom and the millions of french knots in the hair did eat up a lot of time. It turned out exactly as I wanted it to be.
I tried to catch the curls in the hair like in the original pattern by making the french knots in spirals, too. Sadly it is not very visible unless you take a very close look.
The wood grain flexi hoop suits the motif so well :D
You can see how I finished the back of this embroidery hoop in this video tutorial.
