I have seen some beautiful pieces of art created by embroidery and using the hoop as a frame and I wanted to create one myself!
I found some wonderful tutorials on youtube which taught me the different methods to embroider the flowers and found inspiration for the girl on Pinterest – where else!
I used the good old backstitch to draw the girl and stems for the flowers.
For the lavender I used the French knot – which was a lot easier than I thought! The two bright pink flowers I used the lady daisy stitch and for the others I used a combination of both stitches!
Using bits of fabric to create the picture is a great way yo use up those little scraps of material left lying around!!
