Edit to say: Wow, a Daily Deviation? Really? I feel so honored! Thanks to ChimeraDragonfang for the nomination, to ^Talty for the feature, and to all of you for all the favorites!

A common question in the comments was, "How did you do that?" The answer is, "A very tiny drill bit and a lot of patience."

Amazing! At the thumbnail, I thought it was painted. It really surprised me to find that it's actually embroidered! Very creative and done excellently. :) Well done and congratulations on the DD! :rose:
