3D satin stitch like a cushion | Black tutu ballerina embroidery


About this embroidery design

Ma Vie = French for “my life”

Ballerina’s embroidery design with Ma Vie’s words.

I designed it with the message “enjoy life like dancing”.

The bust part of the ballerina’s costume uses a three-dimensional satin stitch technique.

Three-dimensional satin stitch can be easily completed just by embroidery knitting wool such as tapestry wool before embroidering ordinary satin stitch.

This time, the tutu of the ballerina costume is embroidered with black tulle.

It is recommended to use a light color on the fabric to be embroidered, as the black tulle will stand out.

The bouquet is embroidered with fluffy flowers using tulips and wool.
