After I embroidered enough snowflakes for 2017 (there were a lot of snowflakes), I moved my attention to something I’ve been trying to avoid in my embroidery — flowers. I feel like everyone embroiders flowers and I just want to embroider something else. But, the truth is, I looooove flowers! And I love flower embroidery! So fine. I gave in. And it was glorious. I knew I wanted to make a few 3-inch hoops as Christmas tree ornaments, on burlap, with a stained hoop — but didn’t sketch a pattern this time. I just did whatever felt right using 3 different colors (and white) per hoop. If you’re looking for one, Jessica Long at Namaste Embroidery has a great clip on her Instagram about how to make flowers. Here are some snaps of the final product! You can also find these in my Etsy shop.
