Embroidery Hoop Templates | Make
I’ve always loved seeing other people’s hand embroidery. It’s like art with a needle. I knew that I wanted to create something special to go on the wall of my little girls’ room, so I drew some scenes to make some embroidery hoop art patterns. Everything was hand-stitched by me onto 100% linen fabric. I absolutely love how they turned out, and I’m planning a whole room themed around them. Click here and here to see some other elements that I made for the room. If you need help with any of the stitches, I have video guides on my embroidery stitches guide page.
The best part about hand embroidery is always the little details! French knots make great curls, and for the braids, I used a cross stitch. The rainbow is a large running stitch and more french knots for the dandelions. Do you see the lazy daisy stitched bows and the ends of the braids? Details! 🙂 The two girls are supposed to represent my two daughters. Leah’s hair isn’t quite that red or that curly,
There is a different color fabric on the appliques to match each color in the rainbow. I went for muted colors instead of bright. Most of the fabrics were from my grandma’s stash that she let me dig through. I tried to make it so all of them had a sort of vintage feel. The hot air balloon is stuffed a little to make it pop out, and the pinwheel is 3D also. The raindrops are lazy daisy stitches again because I think they are so cute!
