Summertime by the pool is the perfect opportunity to lose yourself in an embroidery project. As long as you’re not chatty like me, and find yourself talking to all the other parents instead of working on the embroidery you’d planned to do for 3 hours while your kids swam.
This butterfly is just so beautiful and the options for coloring it are endless! I opted for picking colors randomly from the skirt fabric, and I’m already thinking about how I’ll do my next one! (Fabric is from the Dear Stella range from Artistic Artifacts, a fabulous quilting fabric and art supplies store in Alexandria, Virginia).
The Mariposa Hand Embroidery Pattern is fantastic value for money, with multiple butterfly designs in both large and small sizes, ice creams, florals, and a floral rainbow. The pattern is digital, so you just print it at home and transfer it to the fabric you wish to stitch on. I personally print it onto Printable Sticky Fabri-Solvy, which makes the process really simple!
Mariposa comes with detailed instructions and is a great first project for beginners! Just start with something small and work your way up! You can use embroidery as wall art, on home dec projects, or on clothing!
