Embroidered Hot Air Balloon


I have a finished project plus all the stitch and color details to share.  This hot air balloon sailing over a city skyline is from my Hot Air Balloon embroidery pattern set. 

For the upper part of the balloon, I used Double Knot Stitch.  The pennant, the bunting, the lower outline of the balloon, the basket outline, the cloud outlines and the buildings are all done in Back Stitch. The balloon filling is Straight Stitch and the balloon skirt is Cross Stitch. The basket trim is outlined with Back Stitch, filled by Straight Stitch and French Knots.

The sequins I used are 5mm faceted cup sequins.  I really love the sparkle that they add!

Here are the numbers for the embroidery floss in my project color project:
