Embroidery #3: Geometric butterfly
A while ago, AliExpress made me curious about embroidery. I ordered two packages, both of which I made, a tiger and a pussy. I thought the kitty was the most fun to make, but it was a bit old-fashioned. I looked for modern patterns to embroider on Pinterest. I found several geometric patterns and these really appealed to me. I ordered 2 patterns from StitchLine's Etsy shop. Today I show the first result.
Buy embroidery patterns
Actually, I had never purchased anything through Etsy before. I looked for a shop with good reviews and ordered two patterns, one of which was free, a pattern for a geometric butterfly and a deer. I added this StitchLine. NB! There are always offers in this shop, read carefully how to order to get multiple patterns for free. I received both patterns quickly in my email and then I was able to buy the right colors of embroidery thread. These were also neatly named on the pattern.
Getting started to embroider the butterfly
First I put the embroidery fabric in the embroidery hoop. I used aida 14 count. I found it a bit difficult to fit the fabric tightly into the ring, but after a few tries it turned out fine. Then I counted the stitches of the butterfly, from left to right and from top to bottom. I wanted the butterfly to be in the middle of the ring.
So I started embroidering with the right wing. The rightmost part of the pattern. The pattern embroiders nicely. This is of course also because you have clear triangles that consist of one color. Some triangles had the same color and I tried to make them the same.
The end result, embroidered butterfly
After many hours of embroidery, my butterfly was finished. I am very enthusiastic about this form of embroidery, sleek and modern. It is also easy to embroider without many color changes and that is very relaxing for me. I also think the colors blend together very nicely. I definitely want to make the other pattern I bought again. So I'm happy with the end result :-).
What do you think of this style of embroidery?
