Spike & Twilight Sparkle

Sometimes, I see something that immediately begs to be embroidered.  I saw just such a picture from Lolover on Deviantart.  Lolover was nice enough to approve me making an embroderiy design of that picture, so here it is.  I also took pictures as it was being sewn, so you can watch a dragon being born.

 Total stitches is over 30,000.  The embroidery file for doing this as a patch is here.  Skip the first color (white) if not doing a patch.  Please be aware that some parts of this design are extremely thick, especially around Twilight's head.   If you try embroidering this on a home machine with a 130/705h,15x1 or related needle, they will break.  Please see this previous post on how to sew patches on a home machine.
