This is a bit of a work in progress. It's done using mostly free motion embroidery. The setting on the machine is changed, so that you can sew in every which way. Maybe it's called free motion because you are freed from the regular straight lines or standard stitches.
To add an element of suspense when I'm making it, I just go for it. No pencil lines to follow, no marking lines. The face features, all lettering, and other stitching is done with free motion.
It's so FREEING!
The hair is one piece of really strange polyester. Can you picture this as a dress back in the day? I LOVE making crazy hair. I suspect this is an outcome of having curly hair and sometimes just letting it curl and curl and curl.
