Crazy January Challenge - Project 4 Finished (Blackwork Robot!)

Another finish today! This is my own design, a cute little blackwork robot :D

I've wanted to try blackwork for a while because I love the patterns and shapes but didn't see any designs that jumped out at me, one day this little guy popped into my head and here he is all stitched up with little button eyes :)

The pattern is available in my etsy shop (link on the right)

I'm sure he'll have some robot friends before too long because I really enjoyed both designing and stitching him.

Enough talk! here's the piccies :D

He's supercute! I love his button eyes, and the fact that you choose pink for him. I always think of robots as grey or black for some reason, lol :)

Thanks for your comments, I love him! I should have given him a proper name I think :D

Oh he's really cute! Great that you designed him yourself as well.
The pink and yellow go great together.
