This month’s SAL is all about Mom and mums. (See what I did there?) Mother’s day is May 12! I’ve taken a bit of a vintage pattern featuring mums and modernized it with a classic tattoo vibe.
1 8″ x 8″ swatch of fabric
Size 9 embroidery needle
Embroidery floss in your choice of colors Water color paints Small paint brush Salt (optional)
Tips and Tricks:
- I’ll be using one thread throughout the design.
- I’ll be applying water colors directly to the fabric. It’s a new-ish technique for me, so this will be a learning experience.
Stitches I think I’ll be using in this design include:
- Lazy Daisy
- Back Stitch
- Straight Stitch
Be sure to add pics of both your work in progress and your completed pieces on Instagram and tag #NewLeafSAL so we can all see what everyone is getting up to.
Most importantly, have fun!
