I would like to share with you the step-by-step tutorial of the embroidery project Blooming Bookmark.
Materials needed for this project are:
Cotton fabric (two layers)
For long and short shading: Three or four shades of threads that belong to a same color group (I used three shades of pink--Anchor nos. 050, 052, and 054)
For french knots at the center: Two or three colors of your choice.
Step 1: Trace the pattern on the first (upper) layer of the cotton fabric, using any tracing method of your choice.
Step 2: Mount the fabric (both layers) on the frame. (To do long and short shading, your fabric should be fixed drum tight). Assemble the threads for shading.
Step 3: To be continued tomorrow.
