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!
