I have another quick and easy embroidery project for you!
- Doddle Stitching: The Motif Collection by Aimee Ray (Get it here!)
- Embroidery hoop (4 inch)
- Embroidery floss
- Fabric (I used gingham)
- 321 – red
- 700 – green
- 727 – light yellow
- 3840 – light blue
This is the strawberry motif we will be using.
Then, trace the motif on to your fabric.
This entire project is created by using the Back Stitch.
I tried Lazy Daisies first, but they were too big and made the berry look cluttered.
If you’re comfortable with the Satin Stitch, you could use that instead of the Back Stitch.
The design shows the petals as a little squared off. I liked the look, so I tried to emulate it as much as possible! One petal turned out rounded, but oh well! I’m all about adding character to my pieces! 😉
Since the majority of the green areas are straight lines, I made my stitches a little bit longer than usual.
The easiest way to define the points is to only use one stitch for each side of the point. Does that make sense?
