'Jungle Book' slip case - Mowgli (again)

Here's where we left things last time, supposedly with everything finished:

It's not right, though: compared to the palm tree, Mowgli just disappears.  I just worked the figure in outline as it was too small and fiddly for goldwork, but it needs more than that.  So, to make it stand out more, I've filled in the outline with split stitch in a dark gold-coloured stranded cotton, Madeira 2213:

I think that works better, don't you?


  1. Yes I do, and the piece is just beautiful. Elegant.

    Very nice, much nicer once Mowgli is "solid"
    If fact, it is beautiful

  3. Yep. Definitely better. It's easier to see Mowgli now and it seems to balance out the bottom of the artwork better to :) as always your work is inspirational.
