Little Ghost

This little guy is pretty simple. I stitched the eyes using 3 ply of Splendor to allow them to recede. The patches are, again, felt appliqu├ęd over the canvas.

I played with the shape of the right shoe a little bit—the sheet and shoe outlines didn’t work for me. The shoes (I’m thinking Converse sneakers—can you tell I love shoes?) are stitched in Velour and Petite Very Velvet. I use white Petite Very Velvet often, but it does shed white ‘dust’ so I try to stitch that area first. Otherwise I use a very soft toothbrush to brush the debris away.

I had to stitch this Goblin in the Encroaching Gobelin stitch; the play on words was too hard to avoid.
