It’s a tradition at Canevas Folies.
Each year before Easter it is a pleasure for me to offer an embroidered egg to mark the end of winter.
It is a small work of a few hours and for this edition I chose a chiseled and monochrome embroidery.
You can download the drawing of this egg in the pattern menu, in 2020 and under the name “Surprise egg“.
The original size of this egg is 10cm and I fully embroidered it with DMC 816 stranded cotton.
I only used 3 stitches to do this work
satin stitch for solid patterns (without forgetting the split backstitch around each surface)
split backstitch for the cluster flower
The full embroidery is realized with 1 thread and the surfaces are not padded!
