Rainbow

You can't have a rainbow with out rain. This colorful kit comes with 6" hoop, floss, needle, pre printed fabrics and three pieces of pre cut pom pom trim. 

I recommend this order: 1) pink 2) lilac 3) fuchsia 4 )orange 5) blue 6) yellow 7) dark teal.

Two pink rows of rainbow are made with repeating daisy stitch. Clouds and some rain drops are back stitch. The rest of the raindrops are satin stitch. For two of the raindrops there are diagonal stitches over the vertical satin stitches. 

The last step is to stitch down the pom pom trim with a running stitch with the coordinating color. Be sure to secure the thread at the beginning and end of the stitching underneath previous stitches on the back. Line up the trim carefully before you start stitching. You can use a straight pin to keep it in place.
