Stamped my image: Note, the Adia cloth really wasn't the best fabric for this.
I hooped it - the fabric was too small, the tension was not tight enough. I made it work
Here it is all stitched out. This needed to be predominantly yellow
I couched the gold thread down to the edge.
I cut the butterfly from the fabric and added a layer of PVC glue to the back. This sealed the thread and created a handmade "patch"
On my block section, I stitched down this pretty yellow lace and added beads, placed the butterfly and created a gold "flight" pattern out of gold cord and also used that in a seam treatment.
The rest of the embroidery
This is such a pleasant skill and hobby. In our screaming hi-tech world, this is a pleasant and low-cost hobby.
Thanks for stopping by and Have a great day!!
