This is going to be a fun project. I am going to embroider these in the fall, winter or maybe if we ever have a rainy day here.
My plans for the fly, bee and dragonfly are to use a filmy fabric. I want to couch stitch the dragonfly body and use satin and long and short stitch for the rest.
Being a beginner, this is all going to be challenging. But I look forward to it.
The fabric from Jackson Fabric Arts, the insect patterns are from The Floss Box.

First try, mini-beetle, it's only about 1-inch square. It's just long and short stitch - mostly practice.
This is my first 'big' embroidery project. It's not big, but it is for me. :) It's about 2¼" x 1½". The fabric is from Jackson Fabric Arts and the pattern is from The Floss Box.
I padded the body with felt. Most of the stitching is done in satin stitch, then long and short stitch with some metallic thread to give it more dimension.
