This is a tote I'm making for my friend, Angie. I thought these little zinnias would be so cute popping out of the pockets of the front of the bag. The stitch for the petals is the woven picot. I found it in this book. The Embroidery Stitch Bible. I like the book thus far, but the instructions on this particular stitch weren't terribly clear. So I went to Mary's website to view her video tute. I like this stitch because it is 3 dimensional.
I think this is my new favorite stitch because it's so versatile. I just love the 3 dimensional look.
I'm also working of Britt's bench. I have the wood. I just have to get the legs cut and screwed into the top then cover it. I should have some sneak peak pics very soon.
