Here is the tutorial for the other project I made while stranded in the airport!
If you missed my first project, you can find it here!
- Doodle Stitching: The Motif Collection by Aimee Ray (Get it here!)
- Embroidery hoop (4 inch)
- Embroidery floss
- Fabric (I used gingham)
DMC Floss Colors:
- 602 – pink
- 703 – green
- 722 – orange
- 798 – blue
This is the design we’ll be using from the Doodle Stitching book.
I like to start by printing my design and then tracing over it with a Sharpie. My tracing got a little wonky on the right boot! 🙂
The Sharpie makes it so much easier to see the design while tracing it onto your fabric.
Trace the image onto your fabric and then hoop your fabric.
We’re going to start by stitching the upper portion of the boots in pink.
The body of the boots are made with the Back Stitch and the little loops at the top are made with Lazy Daisies.
Use your orange thread to stitch the soles.
I had some issues with my second sole. My pencil line wasn’t quite dark enough and the airport had weird lighting, so I ended up having to guess where the stitches were supposed to be!
If you’re comfortable with it, feel free to use the Stem Stitch for this part!
I know it’s hard to see, but I used the Satin Stitch for the center of the flower.
You can either use Lazy Daisies or the Back Stitch for the petals. Whatever floats your boat!
I was on the airplane at this point, so my lighting got even weirder! Oh well!
I was able to finish my project without too many issues!
Our rain boots are complete, and we’re all ready for some spring showers!
