These hand embroidery patterns come in handy when you’re looking for a new embroidery project to start, and I especially like the fact that they are perfect for basic, beginner hand embroidery stitches. So here’s another one to add to your design library!
This embroidery pattern is a medallion of sorts – it would make a good design for a decorative pillow, for a wall ornament, for the cover of a needlebook or anything similar (reduced in size), or a variety of any kind of household goods. I think it would be nice to work in the corners and center of a small square table cloth or linen, in white on white – you could enlarge it for a larger table covering.
Stitching possibilities range from simple outlining (stem stitch, chain stitch, split stitch, or any whipped line stitch) to filling the more isolate pieces of the design with satin stitch. I think the piece is especially suited to whitework, but you could work in two colors on it: pale greens and reds, for example.
Put your imagine to work and see what you can come up with! Have fun with it!
