Last month I had a soft launch on my personal Facebook page for selling some embroidered necklaces that I made. This Butterfly Necklace was by far everyone's favorite. I wanted to show you the progression photos of how this project came about.
Pictures of the Embroidery Necklace
First I drew a simple outline of what I wanted. I then went through and satin stitched around the outline in black, adding some long stitches at the tips of the wings.
Then I continued with the black and made some back stitches to define the wings some more.
I then started filling in with short and long stitches. I started with 2 strands of the darkest color.
Then I put one strand each of the dark and the medium color together.
This is with it all filled in with the medium color.
I then did the same as above for the little wing but with lighter colors to show depth.
One day I hope to get confident enough to sell them to the public; I'm not sure if I am there yet.
