While the original idea for these 3D koi ponds were posted some years ago on r/Embroidery, quarantine 2020 has seen many Reddit users try their hand at this beautiful embroidery idea.
The ‘pond’ is typically a stack of three wood embroidery hoops with tulle as the fabric of the water.
Fish, lily pads, turtles, algae, and different takes on the bottom of the pond 🙂

My 3 hoop koi pond (inspired by the others on here) to be hung in the window. There’s a lot I’ll do differently next time, but I’m pleased with my first try! from r/Embroidery
After seeing u/crazycatlady1919 u/M1ch00I koi ponds I HAD to make my own and I didn’t think I would be so proud of something so soon (thought my last project was my favorite but I think I already have a new favorite!) from r/Embroidery
