Do you want to embroider a beautiful monarch butterfly? Check out this pattern shared by Emillie Ferris
In the art of needle painting, a needle acts like a brush and the thread as the paint, helping you achieve hyper-realistic designs.
You can create realistic embroidered pieces using the long and short stitch technique, just like Emillie Ferris (@emillieferris), who makes contemporary embroidery patterns, kits, pins, and original hoop art using traditional methods.
Insects are a wonderful place to start if you’re a beginner, as they can be very forgiving of mistakes. Their symmetrical nature also makes the entire embroidery process very meditative and relaxing.
In this resource, you will find a ready-made image of a Monarch butterfly that you can print, cut out, and trace over your chosen fabric.
You can complete the project in your preferred color palette to match your style. Once your project is ready, hang it on a wall, give it to a loved one, or share it on social media.
You can also share it here with the Domestika community.
