So Sweepy

I have been embroidering! I made a pillowcase embroidered with one of my Tofu Baby comics from the Flagpole. I started it last week when we were hanging out with my family in Pennsylvania. I needed a project, and I usually take a project with me when I travel. Is it just me, or do crafty people carry craft projects at all times?

I made this comic by using the back stitch. Tofu Baby's eyes are French knots. They were very difficult - I think cos the pillow case had a loose weave in the fabric. I used Sublime Stitching Transfer Paper for creating my design. My mom gave me the pillowcase, too. I love the soft yellow color.
