Patterns: Gil Elvgren

Gil Elvgren pinup, by Sublime Stitching

Gil Elvgren pin-up from Sublime Stitching - stitched wonderfully by Giddy99

Sometimes I see a pattern that's been around for a while, pop up on the Flickr pool and the stitcher has done such a wonderful job with it, it makes me appreciate the pattern in a whole new light. Giddy99's Gil Elvgren pin-up, from one of the Sublime Stitching artist series sheets, was one such example, I love how Giddy has used a running stitch to help emphasise the pin-up's curves. Thanks Giddy for reminding us that such a great pattern sheet is out there!
