Hope all are doing well. Today I am happy to share with you my new attempt of embroidering a mandala with stitches from Straight stitch family. I started to try all the stitches from basic to advanced. Sarah's website helps me to work the stitches in an order. Thank you Sarah. Initially I stitched in a straight line. But then I started to form a design with the stitches and this is the outcome and I am really in love with it. I worked the stitches in a circle and finally it looks like a mandala after embroidering. Here is the mandala.
Pattern for the mandala
I have used three strands of thread throughout. Used 2 shades of purple, green and yellow. You can use any color combination you like.
You can finish this into a hoop frame or this is a perfect design for a 16" cushion cover. I am preparing kits to embroider this design. I will let you know once I am ready with the kits.
In my next post I will come up with another embroidery design which is suitable for beginners. Till then, have a happy time with your needles and thread.
