For my partner in the Common Ground Swap I made my first big embroidery project, I actually enjoyed it a lot more then I thought I would. I picked a Gandalf quote: “I’m looking for someone to share in an adventure” because we are both readers and I felt that quote was fitting. The hobbit hole was an easy choice.
I used some reference images to sketch it out, looked up different possible stitches and then just picked what I thought would look best. The flowers were an addition after it was all finished and I felt it needed some colour, I had a lot of fun looking up different ways to stitch flowers and trying them out. The dragon is a button I once received in a swap on craftster
The back is finished with some fake leather I still had in my stash, I feel like it suits the feel of middle earth
