Butterfly Embroidery Projects



This black and grey butterfly is stitched from another motif included in my Butterfly Garden embroidery pattern set.  I introduced this set in my previous blog post.  

He is stitched with Lazy Daisy stitches in an ombre color effect from black to light gray.  For his body, I used a Couching Stitch couched with silver metallic floss.

Also, as I mentioned in my previous post, I want to share the stitch and color information for the butterfly wreath.    
All of the stems are done with the Back Stitch.  The leaves are Fish bone Stitch.  The light and dark pink flowers and all flower centers are French Knots.  The random accent leaves are Lazy Daisy.  The light yellow starburst flower is formed with Straight Stitches:


The butterfly is Back Stitch, Lazy Daisy Stitches and French Knots: 



Here are the floss color numbers used in this palette:
