pattern: teeny tiny chinese lanterns
Monday is Chinese New Year, and so I thought it a good time to stitch up some little lanterns. These ones are teeny tiny, which is my favorite kind of embroidery! After I did the lantern embroidery, I threaded a bit of floss through the hanger on the lantern, then secured the ends of the thread in the hoop edges. I like that it looks like it's hanging there!
Along with the design you see here, there are three more styles that I've drawn up for you. Embroider a whole bunch of them! They're tiny and quick to stitch!
If you stitch some of these up, I'd love to see them! Add your photos to the Wild Olive group on Flickr, or leave a link in the comments.
