My first stab at embroidery… I thought I was doing it wrong so I didn’t even try again for about 3 years!
My first cross stitch- a very happy flamingo! (Pattern)
Everything begins with an outline…
See? Outlines. I use a split stitch or back stitch for this. (Tutorial)
I transferred a silhouette and “painted” with satin stitches. (Silhouette)
Baby Death Star (Pattern). I learned how to embroider because it seemed like a perfect gift. This one went straight to my husband!
This mama sloth + baby just belonged to my friend Amanda. I stitched it up and sent it where it already needed to be. (Pattern)
