Continue
Knot the end of your thread and bring your needle to the front of the fabric at the starting point of your first stitch.

Start back stitching the outlines of the shapes using two strands of floss in color of your choice.

To fill up the shapes, satin stitch using 3 floss strands in color of your choice. Make sure you start from the outside of the outline covering the back stitches. Important to start from the middle of the shapes, stitch to one end, return to the middle and stitch to the other end.

End
