embroidery - the scarab beetle
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.
