Life Mandala




Happy Beltane, or May Day! Today is a traditional celebration of life, love, growth and the sun. And I have a free embroidery pattern for you! I hope you'll enjoy stitching up this lovely life mandala.


This is a fun pattern to embroider in your favorite colors, or just one color! I used navy blue, in back stitch, split stitch, satin stitch and french knots, on lavender fabric. Then, I decided it needed a little extra color so I added some magenta and blue washes right onto the fabric with watercolor! I really like the effect. I didn't really have a plan, I just painted on color here and there until I liked how it looked. Definitely try out watercolor washes with your embroidery sometime! It's always fun to experiment with new techniques and see what you get.

Here is the free pattern
(click to enlarge)

I would love to see this stitched up in different colors so don't forget to tag or message me if you post your photos! I'm @aimee_littledear on Instagram. :) Have fun and enjoy the coming life filled summer!
