I'm giddy with excitement about my latest embroidery project and wanted to share with you. I started it a few weeks ago on my trip to North Carolina and have been chipping away, stitch-by-stitch ever since.
I bought the tattoo pattern from Sublime Stitching, along with the plain white demi towel and used lots of brightly colored threads. The pattern came with color recommendations but I much prefer mixing and matching my own. Most sections are done with a simple running or stem stitch, with some of the sections filled in with a satin stitch, including the birds' beaks and blood drop.
Stay tuned for more stitchy crafts coming soon, including a stamped & stitched piece of embroidery hoop art I'm making for my friend's little baby-to-be.
