Thread Painting

This is my first attempt at thread painting (aka free motion embroidery). This was all done on the sewing machine using a straight stitch, and a modified zig-zag stitch. I completed most of the hat on 2 layers of medium cut-away backing, then trimmed off the excess, and finished it on the jacket to attach it. The face was done directly on the jacket.
