This hand-sketched effect is fashionable in embroidery right now, and its simplicity is a delight. Our brightly coloured flower and butterfly are worked in Anchor multicoloured stranded cotton, which makes each finished motif slightly different.
They look beautiful paired up on a place mat, but you could try the flower and the butterfly individually too. Try them on napkins, or coasters and they’ll add a summer touch to your dining table.
Simple stitches that everyone can manage make this modern embroidery project easy enough for beginners to try.
