I was thinking of a yoke , made of just mirrors. For this , A plain dark green[synthetic fabric] was chosen.
Then came the choosing of the colours, pink and yellow always go well with green, then some white beads to complete the effect.
I wanted to fill the yoke with stitches without much empty space,so some herringbone stitches were also added.With pink and yellow being the only colours,the herringbone stitches were done with the contrasting colour.

The pattern was drawn in a graph paper, using stencils for mirror rounds.
Three strands of anchor cotton skeins were used throughout the embroidery.
A simple and easy design, can also be used as decorative seam, colour choices depend on individual preferences.
