The objective of this project is creating a matching pillowcase for a duvet cover.
This is the original plain pillowcase and the duvet cover.
This is a wider shot of the duvet cover print.
How I did this
I drew the flowers as a series of lines I would be embroidering and some dots for the centre.
The small flower is going to be embroidered with long and short stitch. No lines here, only the outline.
And again, I drew some lines for the petals and a stem.
For the petals and centre
- Chain stitch
- Stem stitch
- Running stitch
- French knots
For the stem
- Blanket stitch
For the small flower
- Long and short satin stitch
- Running stitch for the outlines
- Stranded cotton in variegated blue, plain blues and some mauve
