Free Project: Flower Girl Hoop




Flower Girl Hoop
By Kirsty Neale

A darling flower girl project for embroidery by hand. Perfect for any girl’s room, this adorable embroidered girl wears colourful flowers in her hair and her pink cheeks seem warmed by the sun. A great embroidery project for you to do by hand, learn fun techniques while making a sweet keepsake for someone you love.

You Will Need:
Grey and red stranded cotton floss (We used DMC colours 413 and 304)

Procedure:
  1. Stretch and secure the linen fabric in your embroidery hoop. Wrap decorative tape around the sides of the hoop, then fold over and press down onto the front edges to decorate.
  2. Draw or trace a head and shoulders onto the fabric using a vanishing marker pen. Sew over the lines with backstitch, using just two or three strands of grey (DMC 413) to keep the lines fine and clear.3. Punch out tiny flowers from a selection of coloured papers. Arrange them on your original drawing or tracing to make a fun flowered hat. Once you’re happy with the arrangement, lift them off one at a time, and fix each to your fabric with a single small cross stitch.

  4. Trim away excess fabric at the back of your hoop. Cut a circle of felt to fit over the back, and glue it in place to hide the wrong side of your stitching.

  1. So sorry! No, there is not a pattern for this. You simply draw or trace a head and shoulders freehand. If you wanted I bet you could print off the image above and just trace her design directly. Hope that helps!!
