Stitching Hydrangea: dimensional embroidery tutorial

Hydrangea embroidery tutorial

The art of hand embroidery has a lot of tricks in its sleeves!

Today we are going to learn how to stitch Hydrangea while maintaining its realistic ball-like shape. For that, we need an extra piece of fabric and a LOT of patience since all these flowers take some time to work, haha.

  1. Hello Amina,
    The process is time consuming but the result is so realistic.
    Your Hydrangea is so gorgeous! I love it! And what looks like the one I have in my tiny garden.

    1. Hi, Ghislaine!
      Thank you for liking this project! Hope your Hydrangea is always healthy and happy :)

  2. Bonjour Amina. Superbe hortensia aussi beau que le vrai!! quel fil utiliser pour cela? un dégradé? ou plusieurs? quelle grosseur?? parlé 8? 12. ou 5 (qui me parait trop gros .
    Merci pour ce beau tuto!!!

    1. Salut! Merci beaucoup :)
      J'ai utilisé de nombreux fils de différentes couleurs. J'ai utilisé une mouline de coton DMC, 1 brin de fil. Mais c'est comme ça que je préfère. Vous pouvez tester votre idée sur un morceau de tissu de rechange, peut-être qu'elle aura fière allure!
