I’ve always enjoyed creating things and stories are not my only outlet. My main outlets, other than writing of course, are jewellery making and embroidery. A while ago, I came across Stitch-a-Photo from DMC. There are other programs out there for turning photos into cross stich charts, but Stitch-a-Photo was nice and simple. All I had to do was send them an image file and they would send me the patterns. I decided it would be fun to try turning my book covers into embroidery.
The first book I tackled was Between Yesterdays. This book had only recently come out when I embarked on my mission to turn it into embroidery so I started with it even though Shadows of Tomorrow is the first in that series. The process to sew the title took a while. Here’s a photo of the work in progress (albeit nearly completed):
And here’s the finished embroidery:
The second book cover I decide to tackle was Omega Rising, the first book in the Codename Omega series. I think it says a lot about the speed of progress if I say that my sister gave me the pattern for this one as a Christmas present. Here’s my progress so far:
When I (finally) finish this, I’ll have to decide which book to transform next. It will probably be either Child of the Hive or Traitor in the Tower, which is the second book in the Codename Omega series. Any thoughts?
