Greenman Embroidery

framed green manJust finished my satin stitch, filled Green Man. I’m exceedingly happy with the way this piece turned out, along with the framing job. I didn’t actually time myself but it was at least 30 hours of stitching. It is done on white cotton muslin with double stranded cotton floss in various shades of green brown and gold. The eyes are single stranded floss.

The frame is a simple embroidery hoop that I painted black and the back has a fabric covered board to keep it nice and neat.
I used mostly a satin stitch but also backstitch, split stitch and Chinese knot. You can find it for sale here

I am going to be making more, but custom orders are always welcome if you would like something different. This design is from Urban Threads (they have a ton of pagan, earthy, punky, alternative designs)
