- Floral Pattern & Stitch Guide
You can use any embroidery pattern you like for your pencil case, so the style can vary greatly.
If you want to add the floral design shown, download the pattern page and adjust the size as needed. The larger motif should be no more than 4 inches wide. In the finished example, it is approximately 2.5 inches wide.
For the floral design, try these colors from DMC: 4210 (Color Variations), 352, 922, 728, Blanc, and 839.
Stitch the large flower with satin stitch petals and french knots for the center. Form the tiny flowers with two straight stitches for each petal and a french knot for the center.
Work the branches with back stitch. Form the loopy flowers and the looped branch with detached chain stitch. For all of the teeny dot flowers, use loose french knots.
- Prepare the Pencil Case
Prepare the Fabric
Iron the fusible interfacing to the back of the linen. This will give your pencil case a bit of needed structure and stability.
Mark out a 5 x 18-1/2 inch rectangle on the fabric. This will be the size of the panel you'll work with, but you don't want to trim it yet. Having the extra fabric around the edge makes it easier to place in an embroidery hoop.
Embroider the Design
Trace or transfer your pattern within the rectangle. Folding the ends in will give you an idea of the placement for the front and flap. Keep the designs at least 1/2 inch from the marked rectangle.
