I got some new embroidery books the other day. Here’s my first project from one of my new books!
- Stitched Blooms by Carina Envoldsen-Harris (get it here)
- Embroidery hoop
- Embroidery floss
- Fabric (I used gingham)
DMC Floss Colors:
- 699 – green
- 796 – dark blue
- 799 – light blue
Design courtesy of Stitched Blooms
This is the blueberry motif we will be using.
Print out the motif and trace it with your Sharpie.
Trace the image onto your fabric and hoop your fabric.
We’re going to start with the green thread.
Use the Back Stitch for each portion of the stem.
The motif shows two lines of stitches for the base stem. You can do two like the motif (and I) did or you can choose to do only one.
If you want to be daring, you can even fill in between the two portions of the base stem.
Now, we’re going to move onto the Lazy Daisies.
I have never stitched this many Lazy Daisies before. It was actually pretty fun!
Once the Lazy Daisies are done, we’ll move on to the blueberries.
Start with the dark blue thread and Back Stitch two of the berries at the top.
Stitch two more berries with the dark blue thread.
Finish off the blueberry bush with some light blue berries.
Our blueberry bush is complete!
Don’t you love it?! I sure do!!
