Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Charles Craft Monaco Evenweave Fabric, white
  • DMC® 6-Strand Embroidery Floss, one skein of each:
  • Flowers: Tawny, Light Mahogany, Light Tan, Ecru, Light Shell Pink, Shell Pink, Med. Light Shell Pink & Light Salmon
  • Leaves: Celadon Green & Fern Green
  • DMC® Light Effects floss for spirals
  • Sheet of white paper
  • Sulky iron-on transfer pen and iron, or other preferred tool for pattern transfer
  • Embroidery needle
  • Embroidery & fabric scissors
  • 6" embroidery hoop
  • Fabric glue

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Using a lightbox or sunny window, trace the floral design onto paper with your iron-on transfer pen.
  2. Place a 7"x7" piece of Charles Craft Monaco fabric under the sheet of paper with the newly penned-pattern, ink side facing the fabric. On the highest heat setting, iron slowly over the fabric to transfer the floral design evenly onto the fabric.
  3. Insert the Monaco fabric inside a 6" hoop and adjust to the desired orientation of the pattern.
  4. Embroider the design:
  5. Beginner Embroiderer: Follow the outline of each flower and inner petal with a different color floss using the split stitch or running stitch*. Use 6 strands of embroidery floss. (*Refer to DMC’s Emma Broidery Stitch Tool for help with stitches)
  6. Advanced Embroiderer: Fill in each petal and leaf using the satin stitch, stitching with 2 strands of floss.
  7. Finish with 2 strands of DMC® Light Effects floss for the spirals coming out of the flowers.
  8. Cut away excess fabric in the back of the hoop, leaving approximately 1/2"-1" of excess. Glue excess fabric to the inside of the inner hoop using fabric glue.
  9. Hang in the window, perch on a favorite bookshelf, or prop on the nightstand.
