2016 Second Place, Non-Professional Japanese Embroidery

Moon Princess was designed by Shay Pendray. This piece is done in traditional Japanese Embroidery stitches and threads. The stitches and colors were chosen by Shay using the threads that I had with a few additional colors. I did all the stitching.

I first chose the blue silk fabric, with blue not being my favorite color because I had a blue bedroom. Then I decided on the Moon Princess design after I heard several in class talk about doing the princess. This piece has been stitched by many over the years.
