13 Hoop

I’ve made a lot of progress on the 13th Doctor hoop! I’ve completed one….

Half-finished goggles here.

Close-up of the steampunk goggles at the top. The left frame is solid black around a circle of bronze chain stitching. The bridge between the two lenses is also black. The other eyepiece has black backstitch in a border around the bronze chain stitch, which is not solid black yet.

I’m very happy with how flat and neat the satin stitch is on these, I usually have problems with it being uneven but this is great! I’m wondering if I should’ve put the strap into the design, though I’m not sure where it would go. Hmmm, for now I think we’ll move on.

Anyways, see ya!
