New Embroidery Pattern with Daffodils, Narcissus, Crocuses, and Grape Hyacinths

Since I joined RSN Future Tutors course nearly two years ago, I haven’t really shared any free patterns here. Although I have learned a lot during my time on the course and I enjoy it very much, I miss ribbon embroidery a lot. So I thought it would be great to design a pattern that will work for thread painting as well as for ribbon embroidery, and to share it with you. The design is inspired by spring flowers — daffodils, narcissus, crocuses, and grape hyacinths, and if stitched it could be a perfect gift for the Mother’s Day or Easter.

I invite everyone to join and stitch this pattern with me. I will be posting my progress on my Instagram (link), and will be delighted to see yours.  There are no rules to follow. You can stitch ether the whole pattern, or just a part of it. You can use any materials you want, I do not want to limit you just to ribbon embroidery. If you more comfortable with threads, use just them. Any embroidery techniques are welcome: surface stitching, thread painting, applique, stumpwork, or any other. Pick your own colours for threads or ribbons and fabric. Challenge yourself and create a unique piece!
