cats dye in progress machine embroidery

Hugo gets some attention..

Before we even got Linus, I did some direct-application dyeing on canvas and began machine embroidering a portrait of Hugo. It’s nowhere near finished, but here are some in-progress photos.
As it is currently:

I like this because it is like the Royal Rainbow from Katamari Damacy, which is my favorite video game!
