My First Attempt at Embroidery

I had never tried embroidery before but after being inspired by so many wonderful embroidery patterns on Pinterest I decided it was time to try it out for myself!

I began by learning some basic stitches from a video on You Tube, then bought myself an embroidery hoop and attempted to create this lavender design. I drew my design onto the fabric first, then used a combination of stem stitch, lazy daisy stitches and chain stitch to complete the design.

I am quite pleased with the way it turned out considering it was my first attempt and I will definitely be doing more embroidery in future – I like the combination of drawing and crafting. I hope you like it! 😊💐
