Choose the color of your fabric
Please note that this are not genuine fabric colors of any manufactuer. The colors have been hand-chosen by me, as they represent an array of colors which act as a decent, though emphasizing background for my intricate design. I strongly recommend to avoid any bold colored and/or mottled so-called "hand dyed" fabrics. Your months-long work on details and specialitles will be lost in any agitated background.
One of the most stunning landscapes worldwide is for sure the Serengeti in Africa. Numerous movies and documentations have been made to show the nature, the animals, the richness – and the need to save and preserve this for future generations.
In this Mandala I took many single impressions to shape the form, to give you small interesting bits to stitch and to create an overall impression of this stunning area of the world. A beaded pond in the center is surrounded by elephant silhouettes against a colorful sunset – you stitch typical huts with Special Stitches which give them a dimenional structure, then you add 4 large panels with landscapes and typical animals.
Flowers bloom in the corners, a border of Baobab and Acacia trees divides from the octagon ornaments with detailed over-one birds. Soaring Eagles drift over the entire scene – and a beautiful ornamented border gives a frame to all the single pieces.
You will use many interesting and different threads, beads and crystals to embellish your embroidery.
