I have a new embroidery pattern available in my shop. It is called Dinosaurs!
This was such a fun pattern set to research and draw. Now I am enjoying stitching the motifs.
I really love this T-Rex. I drew him in two sizes, one size that is in relation to the other motifs, so that you could stitch a whole prehistoric scene and he would be the appropriate scale to all the other dinosaurs and trees and plants. And I drew a big stand alone size. I just finished stitching that one:
Notice his big sharp teeth? As you can see, I stitched them in white floss. The white floss against the white ground fabric wasn't really showing up so I added a single strand of a murky green colored floss and made a straight stitch on the edge of each tooth.
It really makes them stand out:
I think I am going to stitch this little triceratops next:
Here is a look at the pattern packet:
