Tim Gunn Embroidery

An attempt to Make it Work

Jan 23

I made this embroidery of Tim Gunn from Project Runway, because really, who doesn’t love Tim Gunn?
I don’t usually do this style of embroidery, but I wanted to try out some redwork. This outline portrait took about a fifth of the time it normally takes me to finish an embroidery, and I think it looks a lot more realistic.

    Great job, looks just like him. If you digitize this for machine embroidery I would definitely be interested! I also think you should at least send him a photo of your handiwork.
