4th of July Embroidery


Isn't this combination of floss beautiful?! I used these three when I stitched up this heart full of stars from the 4th of July pattern:


This was such a quick and simple project!  It is a nice size too, here it is in my 6" hoop:



I used three different stitches for this project.  The outline is done in Stem Stitch, always a great choice of a stitch for a curved line.  The dots are French Knots and the stars are done in Roumanian Couching Stitch.  I like the Roumanian Couching Stitch to fill shapes, plus it really shows off the color variations in the floss:



I am not sure what I am going to do with this...


I have a dark denim tote bag that it would look good on:




The floss I used was dmc perle cotton color variations.  Here are the numbers:


I am transferring some more motifs from this pattern, I will be back to share those projects soon!

Thank you Darlene! I think so too, I want to experiment with stitching it onto the tote - maybe fray the edges of the white fabric.
