Fictional Violet Flower Free PDF Pattern
This pattern is a little different than what I offer. I usually only use thread and material for my patterns, but every once in a while, I like to mix it up and use a different medium to make fibers pop a bit.
In the past, I’ve used acrylic paints to add to embroidered pieces, but this time I decided to try plain old kids’ crayons to see what I could do with them. It turns out, I really love the way it looks.
Crayons are super easy to use and when you run your iron over them to smooth out the wrinkles, the crayons melt into the fabric. If you use a brand that isn’t washable, the crayon does a nice job of staining the fabric.
