Mixing flowers, animal print fabrics and animal designs has been a fixture in home decorating for years. We are presenting this idea into our Wild Roses collection, which contains Big Cats and Jumbo Applique Roses. We started by designing 5 different big cats and each cat comes in 3 different sizes. These beautiful, graceful cat designs were digitized using only a running stitch technique, which allows you to get a lot of coverage from the embroidery without a lot of stitches. Next we started designing the roses.
To create a dimensional look on the finished product we added freestanding roses by first embroidering the roses on organza and then stitching them on the fabric. The finished product is stunning. Each of the roses comes in multiple sizes as well as versions with and without leaves.
We gave you so many choices in the sizes so you would be able to layer a variety of roses for interesting effects. We created two pillows that use both the cats and the roses as well as three pillows utilizing the roses only, each is more beautiful than the next and it will be hard for you to pick a favorite. There are two different tutorials included in the collection, the first shows you how to create freestanding embroideries and the second demonstrates how to create applique.
