I've been drawing and making mandala art everywhere lately, this is one I created for my illustration e-course Boot Camp at lillarogers.com. (Our assignment was to illustrate our favorite drink, this is my interpretation of Water with Lemon.)
This is the first mandala I've done digitally and I wanted to make it into an embroidery pattern. But I couldn't wait to stitch it up myself before sharing it with you! SO, I decided have a little contest for all you lovely, talented stitchers looking for a new pattern to embroider. (Embroidery is a great project to work on while soaking up sun, or traveling on vacation!) The contest is simple, be the first to complete this new embroidery pattern, send me a picture, and you'll win 4 free PDF patterns of your choice from my shop.
To get the mandala pattern, you'll need to purchase it from my shop: www.littledear.etsy.com
But it is 50% off this week (only 2 buckaroos) so go grab it up fast!
Choose your favorite colors and fabric to stitch on. I'll make a mosaic of all the completed versions and post here. I love to see all the variety you create with my patterns!
