Kiko’s flower

TAST stitch 132 is Kiko’s flower. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, 
an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.
This was the perfect stitch to add to my pretty fabric sampler. I used perle 5 for Kiko’s flower and 4 threads of stranded floss for the French knots in the centre. Just click the photo to take a closer look.

    1. This was my second try. The cotton a broder didn't work very good on this fabric, so I had to frog it!

  2. It turned out beautiful! The background fabric perfectly displays your flower. And your bullion stitches all look fantastic. Lovely!

  3. Wat mooi Annet! Als ik het goed begrijp versier je met verschillende steken (passend bij de achtergrond) een lap voorbedrukte stof?

    Groetjes, Elizabeht

    1. Dank je wel, Elizabeth. Het lapje heb ik in een swap gekregen, het is perfect om te versieren met borduursteken. Als je de link in de tekst onder de foto volgt kun je het lapje zien voordat ik ging borduren.
