Embroidered advent calendar 2018

Since a couple of year, Martine, a French embroidery teacher, offers an advent calendar to embroider via her website and instagram. Usually she publishes the main pattern on her website a couple of days before the start of December and then publishes one motif every day in December on Instagram as well as the explanation on how to embroider the motif.

I had participated 2 years ago but not last year.

This year the pattern was a floral wreath and each day a new flower was added. I had chosen two metallic threads and 5 plain cotton threads to give the wreath some unity.

I really enjoyed embroidering a flower each day, I found it very relaxing and I have learned new embroidery technics.

The finished wreath:

  1. Le résultat est magnifique c’est un super motif que l’on peut reprendre par touche pour décorer de nombreux ouvrages. Cette année c’est tendance de rajouter des touches de broderie sur des tricots.
    Félicitations c’est une superbe réalisation.
