summer embroidery

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I was working on a simple embroidery piece. I finished it a week or so ago, but am just now getting around to photographing and posting it. 


For the banner, I used colors inspired by  sherbet. Isn't it so summery and serene?


I just sketched the pattern onto the cloth with a pencil and just filled in the flags as I went along. No real pattern - just some practice and relaxation. 


Happy (almost) summer!

  2. Allison! You are awesome! That is, hands down, the cutest embroidery I have EVER seen. I was about to say, it might be a tie with this other cute mermaid embroidery I saw recently . . . and realized that was yours, too :-) Do you sell your embroidery? You should . . . I'd be interested!

  6. How cute is that bunting? I have no idea how to embroider. One day I'll learn. Maybe you can give us all a small tutorial one day on embroidering?

  9. Your last couple of posts on embroidery have gotten me back into it. I even ran out and bought the books you suggested. I had learned the basic stitches as a child, but wanted to go deeper. Thanks for the inspiration!

  20. Kelly - thanks for being so sweet! Maybe someday I will get to publishing some patterns on my blog. I just hand drew this one with a pencil straight onto the fabric. I guess we will call it a "limited edition" piece :) I will keep you all posted if I ever am able to share patterns!
