Psychedelic Balloons by Christen Brown

This wall hanging started with two different batik fabrics, the fuchsia and cream pin-stripe and the turquoise, pink and purple spotted dots. I used a series of circle shapes to embroider around, using almost all of the stitches that are shown in my Hand Embroidery Dictionary book. I used five different colors of the hand dyed cotton threads from Laura Wasilowski’s, Artfabrik store.

You can find this piece in my new book the Hand Embroidery Dictionary by C&T Publishing.

Happy Stitching, ~Christen
