Story of the View of Paris design
This View of Paris embroidery design is a pure joy to for every stitcher. Embroidery the contours first as it will allow you to have a better overview. Depending on your preference (and time availability), you can choose to leave the design with only the contours. The line work is explicit enough for anyone to recognize the magnificent structures of the Eiffel tower.
However, if you have more time to dedicate to your embroidery passion and you feel eager to experiment, then the background is all yours! Along with the pattern you will receive a stitch and color guide relevant for the sunset sky that you see on the image. Nevertheless, we always encourage you to embroider the sky that you feel he most inspired by.
Perhaps you have a secret love for early mornings, bright sunshine or late night scenes. In fact, you could even embroider this exact Eiffel Tower Embroidery design on a black fabric with white contours. This would in turn enhance a night scene effect of the same embroidery design.
