Flutter By : 3

This range of embroidery designs is looking more and more apt amid the sunshine, spring flowers and green leaf shoots.

I've gone with real spring colours on this one – light lemony yellow and new shoot green with a splash of budding bloom cerise.

Blanket stitch worked out perfectly for the edges of the wings, providing a nice strong frame for the lighter colours inside. And some Ghiordes knots add a slight 3D effect.

Download the pattern for Flutter By 3 from the free patterns section on my website. And go to the useful links page for stitch books and online stitch libraries.

Hi Analisa. I use six-stranded DMC cottons, and the number of strands you need to use are on the pattern. Kelly
