What materials did you use? The facial features and hair is hand embroider with regular sewing thread on flesh colored fabric. It took a very long time...several months. The entire banner is about 6 or 7 ft tall.

What are you most proud of? Starting. It was very intimidating to try and do the face of Christ.

Do you have patterns? I would love to try this!

No. I don't have a pattern. I blew up an image to get the general outline.

I just blew up a picture and used that as my templet.

I have made some 5-6 ft. long angels banners using what seems to be the same technique for faces. a few years ago. Your face of Jesus is the best that I have seen done this way. My came out okay as different ladies of our parish worked on the angels. Some were better at the stitching than others. I would like to talk a class doing this from you if you should ever decide to put on together on a website. Please let me know if that happens. silkembroider email:
