If you are also an animal lover, you will be able to embroider the portrait of a sausage dog with this template. This design is a base for Valentina’s embroidery technique, called needle painting or silk shading. You will use thread and needle as if they were paint and brush, to create textile pieces with depth, shading, and tone.
