Pink Lady

The fore wings on this butterfly are divided into segments; as the segments rotate around the ring, so will the angle of the stitches. I began by marking the angle of the stitches onto the right-hand wing. I want the wings of this butterfly to look as if they are lifting off the silk background. To achieve this I have padded the leading edge of the wing.

I plan to keep the stitching quite simple and allow the silk to speak for itself. The segments will be embroidered in diagonal layer using 2 strands of deep pink.

Happy Stitching
