This is gorgeous! The gradient of colors is fantastic. Are there six different shades in there?

I thought about it, but didn't have enough of the right shades to do 6 shade changes. It's 4 different colors.

It's not rude to ask  Cheesy I did it sort of like my stumpwork tutorial which you can find on the embroidery board. I embroidered and filled the lotus shape on some fabric (I didn't use any wire like you would with stumpwork), and then applied white glue to the edges to stiffen up the fabric. Once that was dry I was able to cut out the lotus shape and then carefully glued felt to the back to cover up all the messy stitches and sewed in the jump rings to connect it to some chain.

Hope that helps!
