Another Embroidery Project

Using stitch to create sketches – takes a bit more time than drawing but you can create some really different finishes

You start by creating a sketch on tissue paper then pin to your fabric and using back stitch draw your outline.  When you’re happy that you have enough on the fabric to follow the pattern, tear off the tissue and you can start to add detail.

I used a combination of applique and stitch.
