Stitching Mandalas has a very relaxing character. The repetitive shapes allow to play with the colors freely and even help practicing some new embroidery stitches.
The color of the box around each description indicates the level of difficulty.
Green represents patterns using mostly stitches like running stitch or backstitch. A yellow box pattern is more a medium level, french knots, herringbone stitch or others. The red box patterns use a large variety of stitches and might be more challenging.
