Hand Embroidered Fairy

Postby ~FairyMama~ » Mon Aug 22, 2011 2:58 pm

I bought a fairy image for my website and I decided to try to embroider it. It was my first attempt doing something like this and I am not very skilled at embroidery lol. I really only know how to do a basic stitch and a french knot. I think it came out cute! but I am going to try to simplify the image more on future attempts. Some spots just have too many stiches smashed together for detail imo. and I would like to be able to do it faster.

Still though! I wouldn't have any clue what stitch to use where. Really pretty.

ETA This is my favorite of yours so far. I think your skill level is skyrocketing.
