Hello everyone,
I have a friend who want to stitch something bright and colourful to cheer herself up while the nights are still dark so I drew this design for her. This version of a bunch of balloons pattern is designed to be easy to sew with only whole stitches and no shading.
I would like to bring out another version of this pattern to see what I can come up with when I include some backstitch and half stitches. The version so far is turning out to have many more balloons in it so could be a challenge but I'll save that for another time.
The colours of the balloons can be changed around to whatever takes your fancy or if you have a few odd ends of embroidery thread this will be a great way to use it up.
