I was really nervous to try this but i figured you can't know if you can do it or not unless you try and thank you :)
Debbie Little asked:
was this outline of the hair all done with straight stitching? or is there some color pencil work here?
hyperskygirl answered:
I lightly coloured in between the stitching with coloured pencils but all the dark I did with straight stitching with alot of use of the backstitch button :)
