Today I have a pretty unicorn embroidery pattern to share with you. She has a floral wreath and multi-colored hair that was so fun to stitch. Since my “Bloom” embroidery stitch-along did so well, I decided I will be filming another one for this pattern. This pattern is a little more complicated than the “Bloom” hoop, but still doable. If you are beginner, I do recommend trying the “Bloom” hoop first though. Go here to see step-by-step video instructions to stitch this hoop.

To stitch this floral unicorn embroidery pattern you’ll need:
- 6 inch embroidery hoop
- white linen fabric
- DMC embroidery floss – DMC 4215, 3078, 3755, 340, 554, 645, 3609, 826, and 368.
- carbon paper (I also like to use the gray pen out of this pack to transfer parts that I know will be covered. Iron to make it disappear.)
- felt for backing (optional)
I really love the color-changing thread that I used for the unicorn’s hair. It was so fun to stitch and see what color was going to come next. I got really excited every time it changed to dark blue. Haha! Make sure to use small stitches to get around those curves. All parts of the unicorn are done with a split stitch except for the lines on the horn.
I matched some colors from the color-changing thread to make the flowers. I used woven wheel and satin stitches for those, along with french knots (my favorite). The larger leaves are fishbone stitches, and the smaller ones are a satin stitch.
