An Old/New Project


Remember this flower headband tutorial?

When I was sorting through some paperwork last week I found an old sketch I'd made of the same design, that I'd obviously intended to use as an embroidery pattern but never got round to stitching.

So, better late* than never, I'm making a start today! I've drawn a neat version of the pattern...


... traced it onto some fabric and popped it in an embroidery hoop ready to stitch.


Next up: picking colours and choosing stitches. I do so love the start of a new embroidery project, there is so much delicious possibility in those unstitched lines.


* I don't know exactly when I thought about sewing an embroidered version of this flower, but the original tutorial was created waaaaay back in 2010 so this pattern could have been hanging around waiting to be stitched for quite a while!
