Ta da! I finished up a quick embroidery project yesterday and I'm so happy with this little blue butterfly! I've always liked the look of butterflies for home decor, but never loved the idea of catching and killing one for the sake of decoration. This lil gal is the perfect compromise - a relaxing lap project for when my kids are quietly playing or watching a movie and a nice pop of color for my book shelf!
The project took me around four days to complete and I worked on it on and off when I had a chance! I do have some experience (see my embroidered denim jacket here) but I think this project would be reasonable for someone new to needlework too! I had some interest via my Instagram page for a DIY kit to make your own, so I am pre-selling them for $20 which includes shipping to US addresses.
Each kit includes:
- 10.5" natural cotton with printed butterfly pattern
- 6" wooden hoop
- Black, Blue, Teal and Yellow DMC embroidery floss
- 2 embroidery needles (sizes 5 and 10)
- Written instructions
