Cross stitch fashion illustration, girl with red lips.

I have been working on some new designs for my Etsy store recently. I have looked back at some of fashion illustration work and have stared turning them into cross stitch patterns. Tweaking them here and there. I wanted to share the first one I have listed in my Etsy store I call her girl with the red lips.

This is the original drawing, I have just scanned it into the computer, if you look closely you can see the pencil drawing underneath. This is how I like to do my illustrative work. Work lightly first in pencil them make bold line with either a fine liner or pen and link. I do love a jet black outline.

I then converted the design into a cross stitch pattern. I have kept the pattern as simple as possible for beginner stitchers to follow. It uses only full count stitches and only two colours. What could be simpler. I love how I have picked out her lips in red.

I think she would look great stitched up and framed in a high fashion shop, boudoir or dressing room.
If you like the look of 'girl with the red lips' and want to sew her or check out any of my other patterns. Pop over to my Etsy store. I will be updating it with my new range of fashion illustrations.
