The pattern for this design can be found in my here in my Etsy shop. Its a pattern that’s fun and suitable for beginners! The stitches you will learn are Satin Stitch (my personal fave), Brick stitch, French knots and Chain stitch. The pattern includes a list of materials used and recommendations. Below is an example of the stitch guide
You can use any type of fabric for embroidery, I personally like to use cotton or linen with my favorites being ‘Kona Cotton’ or Robert Kaufman Linen. Its great fun to experiment with different coloured fabric and I’ve tried this design out on Robert Kaufmans ‘Willow’ (in the picture above) ‘Blossom’ and ‘Ivory’.
I simply love this pattern, its such an enjoyable piece to embroider and I think it makes a lovely accessory to the home. People often ask me what you’re ‘supposed to do’ with your finished embroidery hoops.. display them! I think they look great with hung up on a hook, or you could get fancy and hang them with hooks and a chain or just simply on a mantle piece or add some colour to a shelf!
Let me know how you get on with this design if you give it a try!
