Villain Stitchalong: Darth Vader
As soon as the Villain theme was announced I knew I was going to stitch Darth Vader. My 5 year old daughter loves Star Wars and my original plan was to stitch Darth Vader in black thread on pink fabric. I started looking at coloring sheets to use as a pattern and noticed Darth Vader looks strange with just black outlines, it just didn't have the same feel to it.
So my husband suggested that I stitch the outline in white on a dark fabric and I absolutely love how it turned out. I did stem stitch for the majority of it with a few areas of back stitch. Unfortunately for my daughter though, I think this is destined to become an iPad sleeve for my husband, I started doing patchwork for it to make it big enough. I guess I'll just have to do another Star Wars embroidery for her.
