Last week a pin popped up in my Pinterest feed which was a link to some free simple drawings for embroidery. I just fancied a go.
I printed the image off, taped it behind the calico and used a window as a lightbox, to allow me to trace the image onto the calico using a dressmakers pencil.
I’m no expert but this is really fun, it’s like colouring in with thread. I’ve only been using back stitch and my work isn’t the neatest, but it’s called ‘doodle’ for a reason, it isn’t meant to be too uniform is it? If you want to get more fancy and use different stitches then there are some lovely tutorials on sublime.
Do you embroider? Feel free to leave any links in the comments to your work.
