A Dragonfly embroidery pattern - this DIY is perfect for creating your own piece of modern hand embroidery.
This Dragonfly is the first of my Intermediate pattern, designed for crafters with a some embroidery experience who want to develop their techniques even further. If you've completed one of my beginner designs, this is a great follow on - and if not, never fear! There's plenty of instructions and photos to guide you through the project.

This pattern is designed to fit a 7 inch hoop, but could be scaled up or down to match any size.
This is a PDF download only, so you will need to source fabric, embroidery thread, needles, an embroidery hoop, and dressmaker's carbon paper (all easy to find online and elsewhere if you don't have them at home already). Please make sure that you have a PDF reader (e.g. Adobe Acrobat), and access to a printer.
