This Somewhere Over the Rainbow embroidery pattern is an interpretation of one line from the song: Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly... To me, it means freedom from the world that holds you down, holds you back and keeps you from being your best. I imagined the stripes in the rainbow as a sampler, though you could definitely use the same stitch throughout. I also designed the clouds around the french knot, so you don't have to bother with the texture bits in the clouds if you're also doing french knot clouds. I included a pic of my interpretation (blanket stitch anyone?) and a friends interpretation of the pattern. I hope they're inspiring. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY back stitch french knot (optional) blanket stitch (optional) fill stitches (optional)
