Rose embroidery workshop
Youtube video tutorial:
- DMC Cotton Embroidery Floss (I used #543)
- Cotton or linen fabric material
- Prym trick marker or Pilot Frixion Pen
- Needle for embroidery
Print the pattern (change size in your printer settings if needed) and tape it to a bright window. Cut a piece of fabric and tape it over the pattern. Trace the pattern onto the fabric using Prym trick marker or Pilot Frixion Pen. Instead of window you can use a tablet.
DMC Cotton Embroidery Floss consists of 6 strands, but this whole project is embroidered with 3 strands. Separate 3 strands and make a little knot on one edge of the floss.
Embroider flowers with whipped back stitch. First make a back stitch: make a single stitch, take the thread to the underside and "back" one stitch, return the needle to the end point of the first stitch. Take another thread and bring it in the beginning of the line made with back stitch. Pass the needle under the stitch from above.
When the embroidery is ready, do not forget to erase the pattern underneath. You can do it in two ways:
- Spray water on the fabric if you use Prym trick marker
- Dry the fabric with hairdryer if you use Pilot Frixion Pen
