When I got home with my new supplies I knew I wanted to do something right away. I started searching for reference on flowers and nature. I wanted to do something simple but cute so I decided I wanted a flower and a butterfly. This is what I came up with.
I drew this on white linen, then I selected a few floss colors, some were DMC and some were Prism. Then I proceeded to embroider in a organic way, I just let the lines of the drawing tell me what stitches should be used.
This is how it turned out after I damped the fabric to take off the water erasable pen. I loved doing this a lot so get ready to see more embroidery in this blog. The outer fabric is tucked below the hoop that's why you can see shadows on the fabric.
