May Stitch-along

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.

Supplies List:

1  8″ x 8″ swatch of fabric
Embroidery Scissors
Size 9 embroidery needle
Embroidery hoop
Embroidery floss in your choice of colors Water color paints Small paint brush Salt (optional)

Just black!

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!
