Butterfly Basket 1

Filed under: Butterfly Baskets

This is from my Butterfly Basket series & is a “Pinsations” original design & stitch selection. The pin is added to the piece so that the pin can be removed, worn, & replaced. 

The flowers are Daisy. The basket is Criss-Cross Hungarian. The stem is Whipped Stitch. I especially like the shading in this basket. I used a thread blending technique with several shades of brown DMC floche to get an effect of some depth to the basket.

Books used:

  • Stitches To Go by Suzanne Howren and Beth Robertson. 
  • The Needlepoint Book by Jo Ippolito Christensen.
  • from Elegant Stitches by Judith Baker Montano.
