Needled painted tulips Flower n°1 Petals 4 and 5 Petal n°4 For this petal, I have not used any new color I used colors 221, 3831, 3833, 760, 725 and 746. As usual, border the top of the petal with split backstitch and 1 thread in a neutral color (eg 760). Drawing the pattern, I forgot to mention the back part of the petal. You must follow the edge I made with the split backstitch to add it. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. Start by embroidering a few stitches with the color 221. Continue with color 3831. Extend the work down with the color 760. Embroider the outside of the petal lapel with the color 3833. Finish the filling with the color 725 and add some stitches to the base of the petal with the color 746. Petal n°5 For this petal, I used the colors 221, 893, 3833, 760, 819, 746, 902 and 367. Surround the outer part of the petal with split backstitch, I used the color 760. Start by embroidering a few stitches with the color 221. Continue with color 893. And with color 3833. Extend with color 760. Embroider a few stitches with the color 819 in the right part of the petal and some stitches with the color 746 in the left part. Embroider now with the 725 color. Finish filling the petal with color 742. To give more depth to the embroidery, I added some stitches with the color 902, especially to emphasize the edge of the petal and some stitches (few) with the color 367 to emphasize the central vein. 2 Comments Bridget on October 7, 2018 at 10:27 am Wow those colours sing Thoroughly enjoying embroidering the tulip Could you design a quick evening bag for the festive season (I have some silk to embroider on) Thanks B Reply Laurence on October 7, 2018 at 10:59 am Thanks. Of course we will look at it. I have ordered the new silk thread packs designed for Christmas by au ver à soie. You will see, they are gorgeous. When are you back?
