Madonna and Child

I'm not real happy with the way this turned out, especially the eyes.  With a limited color palette I had to make some hard decisions.  I'm only using lavender, white, black and purple DMC floss on this apron.  My brother said it looks like a Russian Icon, so that cheered me up a bit.  This is for the craft part of my Gospel of Luke homework for New Testament class.  I started a Peace Dove design today for the top part of the apron.  Design by Urban Threads.  Apron Rit-dyed purple.  Hand-embroidered.

More Jacket Designs

Here are two more designs on my jean jacket.  The first is a mermaid because that's one of my nicknames.  Mermaid design by Aimee Ray. The second is Art Nouveau flowers, the flowers are light blue, but it's hard to tell in the picture.  Flower design found on the internet.
