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!
