Another embroidery project
A simple embroidery project inspired by the Forget-Me-Knot kids. The motifs are my own, with the exception of the bunny and the stump, which came from the book Doodle Stitching. This is a fun book, full of very simple line drawings of just about everything under the sun that you might want to embroider.
I used very simple stitches: stem stitch, lazy daisy, French knots, and satin stitch. It is fun to color in the larger areas with colored pencil, an idea from Shelly at Gingermelon dolls.
Now all I need to do is finish the project...any suggestions?
