Her name is Primavera, but her friends call her Vera for short. 🙂
This is another of those Big Embroidery projects I did for Sulky’s Quilt Market booth. That’s a quilting hoop she’s in!
Here’s how I made her. All the links go to supplies or video tutorials.
The method I used is really similar to this cat. . .
. . . except that I embroidered the flowers in her hair instead of embroidering just the background.
Then I printed out a single page of the flowers in the Continuous Stitches embroidery pattern onto Sulky Sticky Fabri-solvy. The pattern is designed for seamless repeats, but it only took one sheet to cover all her hair.
I used a single strand of Sulky Petites 12 wt. thread and only stitched the flowers that sat over her hair. You can see that I ignored the printed pattern for larger flowers that would have gone outside her hair. I just filled in those spaces with some of the smaller flowers.
After all the stitching was done it was time to soak away the stabilizer.
Look at that pretty face being revealed. 🙂 And that’s me and my camera reflected in the water!
Love that sweet face!
Here are the other BIG pieces I stitched for the same project.
These big embroidery pieces have been so much fun!
