The Embroidered Animal pattern.

Color is Key—a Colorful DIY Pattern That Pops

21 October, 2016

We’ve got a colorful DIY pattern that promises to pop you right out of your white-wall-doldrums. This embroidery project utilizes negative space to create its animal design. While the animal itself is blank, its outline is jam-packed with bright, robust flowers and foliage. The red and pink hues make this colorful DIY pattern a necessary accessory for any dull room. The color palette, as seen in the instructions below, is extensive. It ensures that this décor piece, though only 7-inches, is mighty in its effect. Brighten up your room and your life with this lively design.

Now all you have to do is decide which room to hang it in!

The pattern is available for download below.
