A while ago, I offered to make an embroidery hoop for a friend of mine. I stitched up this floral wreath embroidery pattern, and asked her what words she wanted on it. Without hesitation, she said, “adorable and humble.” I had to know the story behind it! Apparently, any time she asks her grandma how she’s doing, she says, “adorable and humble!” So cute, I love it!
Of course, you can change to words to say whatever makes you happy.
To stitch this floral wreath embroidery pattern, you’ll need:
- free pattern download – instructions to download are at the bottom of this post
- 7 inch embroidery hoop
- gray fabric – see my post about best embroidery fabric here.
- embroidery floss (colors listed on pattern)
- felt for backing (optional)
The big flowers are my favorite stitch, the woven wheel. I love how easy they are to make and how beautiful they look! All of the leaves are made using a satin stitch, and the small flowers are a lazy daisy stitch.
The words are formed with a stem stitch. Try to keep your stitches really short around the tight curves. That will make them nice and smooth. If you want to change the words, you can use any monoline font to get this look. This hoop would look really cute with a baby name or married couple’s names on it too!
I really hope grandma loves her new embroidery hoop. I think I might have to take a cue from her and start telling people that I’m adorable and humble. Haha! My friend showed all of her siblings, and now they all want one too.
