Rethinking the Joker

I kept working at the padding for padded satin stitch over the teeth and lips. I have one layer in two strands of floss everywhere now. The first two and a half teeth are covered in a top layer of padding, and the next tooth has two layers of padding. The rest is just a single layer.

I might like this better than the original padded satin stitch plan! It looks like a quick sketch – scribbling in between the lines. Since it’s from a comic book, that’s appropriate. I could take the extra layers off those four teeth to match the rest. I might need to touch it up in a few places since I wasn’t planning for this layer to be visible.

What do y’all think? Two more layers of padding then a layer of satin stitch, or stop here?

Also, the color in the photos is still not quite right; I think the shine from the cotton sateen is throwing the camera off.

    I like the first two teeth (top left)! You are sooo patient!

    I like your sketchy idea!

    The sketchy idea is a good one, and rather unusual, since embroiderers tend to go for full coverage. Give it a go!
