Here's another project that makes use of an embroidery made from a vintage pattern. It's also one of my very favorite subjects for embroidery, a basket full of flowers. I just love them! It was a very simple pattern, mostly lazy daisy and button hole stitches were used.
I had the pink fabric in my sewing room closet and decided to use it instead of my usual unbleached or tea-dyed muslin. I was at Hobby Lobby looking for some trim to go with it, when that flowered fabric caught my eye from across the room and I knew it would go perfectly with the embroidered design.
The dark pink and blue threads are Hobby Lobby's Artiste, the lavender flowers were made with Sulky Blendable and the white daisies used DMC. I wanted a more textured heavy fiber for the basket so I stitched it with Caron Watercolours in Antique Bronze. I then added the leaves using a nice green Threadworx pearl cotton size 12.
This is the pattern, as I mentioned before, quite simple, but a joy to stitch! I found it on Flickr's Hooplove Vintage Transfers, a place that I love to browse often! Thanks for visiting once again!
