This is the second in a series of designs that will form part of the embroidered pashmina project we’re planning.
I’ll be proposing several of them in different shapes and colors over the next few weeks before deciding which ones will be chosen for embroidering the pashmina. It goes without saying that each of these designs can be used individually according to one’s whim.
All available drawings are grouped together in a downloadable file HERE.

for the flower DMC 963, 3708, 3705, and 666 and for the leaf 3761, 3845, 3844 and 3808.
Below you’ll find close-up photos to help you work on this motif with ease.
