As you probably know if you follow my blog, I'm a bit of a cross-stitch fanatic. But I also love embroidery. To make this pretty pendant, I used a piece of flowery fabric as a guide instead of drawing my own design. I love the way it came out, so I'm probably going to be making a lot more of these.
I started with this small-scale flowery fabric and a pendant setting from the Etsy shop Kailea. I used a fabric marking pen to trace around the frame of the setting so I would know which portion of the design to stitch.
Then I just popped the fabric in a small embroidery hoop and used three strands of matching floss and backstitch to outline the flowers. I added tiny glass beads to accent the flower centers.
When I was happy with the finished design, I removed the fabric marker lines and mounted it in pendant setting. Small prints definitely work best for this project, so I'll be searching my stash for more fabrics to embroider.
