Topic: Paper Embroidery
Other than butterflies and dragonflies I don't have 'insect' patterns. Oh, wait! There is that really lame lady bug... Well in one of the books I own I came up with this cricket.
I pricked it out at home and photocopied the instructions with the colors. However, I didn't take the photo of the finished product so I had to guess at the stitching of the back legs. I don't hang around looking at crickets either, so either they are right or wrong - but they're done!
Not my favorite pattern - kind of creepy!
I bordered to match the leaves and then backed with a triple honeycomb print.
