I've been working hard on this piece, making the pattern then stitching it over the past few days. I love Axolotls, they're so cute and smiley and I enjoyed every stitch of this one. The thing I love about embroidery is that there's no restrictions on the fabric or floss you can use so every piece can look very individual.
I stitched the design on some lovely printed fabric that kind of reminded me of bubbles and underwater, I used Dragon Floss Stashaholics for the outline and DMC 4215 for the frondy things (I really should find out the scientific name for those!)
I used chain stitch for the main outline and backstitch and bullion stitch on the frondy things.
The pattern is available to buy at my etsy store :)
Anyway enough rambling, here's some piccies:
