Hookah Smoking Caterpillar

Alice in Wonderland is Catherine’s theme for the book page swap at Fibre Fever. 
At first I had a different idea for her page, but being the last person I had to choose a different character.
After reading Mollie’s tutorial I tinted the caterpillar with coloured pencils.
I stitched the outlines in stem stitch and whipped backstitch with 2 threads of stranded floss.
Take a closer look at this page here.
