Taking flight – The Bumblebee
This project contains stumpwork
In the third part of this project, we will embroider the bumblebee.
It also does not contain “stumpwork” but its body in Turkish work and its wings made with organza ribbon give it a lot of depth.
Embroider the body in Turkish work of 2 different colors with 2 threads.
Do not hesitate to tighten your stitches. The plumper the body, the better the bumblebee.
For the wings, you will need
4 pieces of about 12 cm organza ribbon 1.5 cm wide.
1 small punch or a big needle to make the holes used to pass the ribbon.
A chenille needle n° 22 to use with the ribbon or any other needle big enough to put the ribbon on.
