Some Flowers: A Free Embroidery Pattern

I can't believe it is already May! To celebrate the new month and the spring weather I made an embroidery pattern for you!

It is simple but a bit versatile; you can embroider just the main pattern on the left or add any of the extra flowers. This weekend I made two samples using this pattern.

The first was the pink on this beige 'waffle textured' fabric. When iron-on transferring the embroidery pattern I accidentally moved it and three of the flowers were wiggly so I just omitted them. I think it would look really nice with a satin stitch to fill in the flowers.

My second time using this pattern I decided it would be fun to use iron transfer crayons to color the petals. They looked nice before I added the embroidery, but the embroidery really makes them stand out.

If you make something with this I would love to see pictures!
