Student Saxophone bookmark

Didn't know what to get my brother when I was visiting him in UK. This piece took me the shortest time to complete it.

Finished it with felt and a musical-themed ribbon. Bookmarks are simple awesome as it can be of any shapes and sizes. =)

Dear Danish

Honestly, this piece took me the longest. Not that it is complex but it has been my piece in between many events including my very first surgery in life. It is also my first piece with a message.

Lessons learned :
- Never leave the cloth in the embroidery hoop in between stitching; remove the hoop when you are not working in it as it will leave a permanent mark on the cloth :(
- always make sure the kind of pen you use to mark on the fabric. *sighhh* I mistook my washable pen with a ball point pen. :(
