I started a new project yesterday.Its embroidery on a bed linen. I have got a nice yellow sheet and 2 pillow covers. I chose a very simple flower pattern eventhough I wanted a large intricate design.(I dont wan it to be a five year plan :D) I traced the pattern on to the fabric and started embroidery on the pillow covers. The colors I've chosen are lilac and green.
Chain stitch is used almost exclusively.French knots in the centre of the flower.Light and dark shades are used for flower. For the bed linen, I repeated this motif from one end to another edge of the sheet.For pillow, its on the centre of the pillow.
