Happy Tuesday! We've officially survived January🥳️This month's pattern is a little sweary, so there's also a non sweary version attached!
What you'll need:
A 5" hoop
An 8" by 8" piece of Lilac Cotton Fabric
Embroidery thread in DMC 310, 07, 772 and 48
An embroidery needle
A small, sharp pair of scissors
Whipped Back Stitch
Transferring the Design
To transfer your design, first print off the pattern page at the end of this post. You want to place this over a flat source of light like a lightbox or window (if you have a glass table, you can simply use a light underneath). Alternatively, if you have a tablet you can transfer from that. Place your fabric in the hoop. Flip it over to the reverse side, so the fabric lies flush against your pattern. Using your chosen pen, carefully trace around the pattern. Once done, take the fabric out of the frame and put back in the right way round. I recommend using the pilot frixion pens, these can be removed with heat. Water erasable pens also work well.
Starting with the text, use two strands of DMC 310 and stitch using whipped back stitch and French Knots to dot the i's.
Next, using leaf stitch fill in the leaves with four strands of DMC 772
With two strands of 3831, use stem stitch to complete the stem.
With all 3 strands of 48, starting with the darker pink at the bottom, place French Knots on the dots from bottom to top to create an ombre effect.
Use your preferred method to back your hoop, and you're ready to go!
