I am currently working on some stitched bookmarks that may be given as gifts.
Here is my first one. A pink Flamingo. I based the design off of a free digital stamp from Dustin Pike the only real change I have made is adding the second leg and making the beak a bit more pointy. I may do the water a bit differently once I get into it.
Most of the stitches are backstitch. The eyes are french knots. His legs are done with the couching technique, and his "knees" are a satin stitch.
