Is there a good book or site that has patterns? I already know how to do it I just don't have a good selection of patterns. I looked on-line but it wasn't much help.

TexasSugar, that's a great idea!

I had to laugh when I first read that though. I mean, who wants a brush embroidered bulldozer or race car or rocket ship? It took a split second for me to realize that there are OTHER kinds of coloring books out there... (Can ya tell I have all boys? LOL)

I've done a brushed embroidery motorbike recently!! icon_redface.gif

I've started looking at gift boxes and packaging for ideas lately. I even found a nice design in a wedding fayre brochure.

Can someone post a link to a picture of your brushed embroidery? I don't know what you are talking about. Duh....

Wow. Thanks for answering me so fast. Is it done with a stencil and then tweaked with a brush?

Mine was totally free hand, lol. First time i ever tried it. Next time I will use a template or something. Yes, you use a damp brush and kinda run it thru the bottom half of your outline in a downward motion.
