I had a really great idea for a gift to make for my husband for Christmas; it was so good that I couldn’t keep it a secret for long. He knew I was working on something, and the best light in the evenings in the house are in rooms that are “public” so I couldn’t hole myself up in our bedroom with the door shut and stitch. As a result, he got a look at the sketch pretty early on (and cracked a little smile).
The end result is this scene.
If you aren’t familiar with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, you should be — it’s hilarious. This is based on a scene from the episode Dennis and Dee go on welfare. Plus you know, he does have what I need. Hilarity + Sentimentality = Awesome. Or at least, I think so. I did learn that hands are not my forte, but the intention was to have it look a bit hand-drawn and irregular (since I know I can’t draw [or trace] people terribly well). I didn’t want the stairs to look perfect and then have two slightly odd-shaped people on them.
