Wedding Gift

After realizing that I will not be able to buy my friends an expensive wedding gift.  I came up with an idea to embroider a portrait of them for their gift.  The hardest part of this is reducing their images to solid outline without any talent at drawing.  After playing around with a picture of them in Gimp (Photoshop for poor people), here's what I was able to come up with.  I took the image above and started outlining it with a magic marker and here's what my drawing non-skills were able to produce (flipped for embroidering convenience)

From here I did some more editing to try and make the portrait a bit more flattering.  I've already started sewing since I'll need this finished by Oct 27!  More pics soon!
