I confess, I’m a little bit 90′s obsessed and recently I was lucky enough to participate in a private embroidery swap which allowed me to indulge my 90′s nostalgia while making something my swap partner would hopefully get a kick out of.
I hope you’ll recognise this guy as Paul Rudd, (or Josh, Cher’s love interest in 90′s movie classic Clueless). I wanted to give the impression of a denim jacket patch or a drawing you might pin-up in your locker. Real heart-throb doodling in the back of your exercise book stuff , lol.
I opted to use a post Clueless pic of the actor though, as I was worried he wouldn’t be distinct enough in this small piece- (where I was hoping hair and general demeanour would tell you who this is) the piece is only 5.5 x7.5 inches tall.
I figured the pink back ground and Cher’s retort of choice “As If!” would clearly nod towards the movie.
My swap partner is a fellow stitcher I’ve been a fan of for some time, Jessica Kelly of Paper Stitch fame. And if you’d like to see what I got in return you can head on over HERE to see what she made me .
