Tyger's Cub Medallions

My friend's two boys were inducted into the Order of the Tyger's Cub and I surprised them by embroidering their medallions. Here they are:
I made the cords via a lucet with cotton DMC thread (wasnt using silk on medallions for two small boys)

This one I did cross stitch on. it was hard to do the stitching with such tight weave fabric, but I managed.
With this one, I did period tent stitching.
Inside the medallions are heavy stainless steel rings and i self stuffed the medallions when i stitched the fabric around them. There is a piece of red fabric on the back to hide the stitching. They liked them alot! :D

Future Project (no set deadline)

I know its allegorical, but I am so going to embroider a gown this way! LOVE IT!
