“Girl Power” Embroidered Pillow

My energy’s been lower the past couple of weeks, but I was finally able to finish a gift for my friend, Sean, and his newborn daughter. My friend’s a fan of comic books and superhero movies and I thought a nice bit of comic culture would be an appropriate addition for his little girl’s decor.

16-count aida cross stitch cloth
Yellow cotton embroidery floss
Electric blue cotton embroidery floss
Plum cotton embroidery floss
Scrap denim
Scotch tape
Sewing needles

I ended up free-handing this design — one of the more recognizable female empowerment slogans inside an action comic bubble. Not know which color choices my friend made for their child’s room, I went with plum and electric blue for the dominant colors with a bit of yellow to denote “action” in the comic bubble outline.

And there we have it! My first completely free-handed design. I hope Sean likes it! What do you guys think? Questions? Critiques?
