Embroidery Insects: make your DIY embroidery pattern and create realistic embroidery bugs for a gallery wall, like this dragon fly.
Embroidery insects are fun to make, and with our tutorial you can make your own embroidery pattern for any insect you like. Stitch them in realistic colours, or add some whimsy with your own colour choices.
I’m so excited to be joining in with the Seasonal Simplicity Fall Series. There are so many great Fall DIYs from my blogging friends, sure to inspire you as we head into fall. Be sure to check them all out at the end of this post.
Science Themed Decor
For several years in the fall I’ve decorated with a bit of a scientific botanical theme. You can check out my science themed fall home tours here, and here and here. These embroidery insects would be great any time of year, but I especially love this for fall mixed with lots of nature inspired decor, like pumpkins, grasses, leaves, acorns, pinecones. When I first used this theme for fall home decor, I imagined a historical nature loving botanist woman, who loved spending time outside and collecting specimens, and coming home to study and document them.
These embroidery insects are a beautiful addition. We used small embroidery hoops as the frames for the these pieces, and used lots of different colours, and some beads to create them. These were actually made by my 17 year old daughter Paige. She enjoys embroidery, and is great at it. I asked her to make these for me and she did an amazing job.
Use An Insect Image To Make Your Own Pattern
The pattern for the dragon fly embroidery was made with an image that we found on-line. You could use this method to make a pattern and embroider any insect you like.
You can either base your colours for the embroidery insects based on real insects, or you can get a bit more whimsical.
Want To Use Our Pattern?
To usse this pattern, just print the image above scaled to fit the size of your embroidery hoop.
I love how the three embroidery insects look together as a little grouping. We are hoping to add a few more to our embroidery insect gallery. These are so fun, I love how they turned out.
With this amazing embroidery insects gallery wall, life really is a party!
