We love to do free-form embroidery. There are no rules here. It's very very easy to embroider onto knit material like that of a sweater.

You will need:
old sweater
embroidery floss
large embroidery needle
pom-poms (optional)

  1. Thread full strands of embroidery floss into a needle, and start embroidering at the collar/shoulder of the sweater in a splashy burst pattern.
  2. We alternated colors to create a rainbow effect.
  3. At the bottom, we affixed pom-poms to give the design even more dimension.
