Free Valentines Embroidery Pattern

Hello!


I hope you're having a lovely January so far and looking forward to the year ahead.


I'm looking forward to the New Year, there are lots of things I want to develop for Oh Sew Bootiful this year, one of which is my Newsletter; I've been putting it off as it seems really daunting but Ive been wanting to send you updates, tips and freebies for ages so Im going to start as I mean to go on with this little lovely.


It's a simple design using only 2 stitches, though you could add a couple of French Knots to the end, and fits inside a 3 inch hoop. I've used pink and blue here but you could always mix the colours up, red and black, purple and pink or even rainbow! 



Simply click on any of the images below to sign up to the Newsletter and it'll be delivered straight to your inbox ready to download to get stitchy with :D


Don't worry, I'll not be spamming you every other day or anything, Im just aiming for a monthly update :)

Hello!

So, with Easter now approaching (how is it April already?) I thought it'd be nice to give you a little freebie for an Easter embroidery project.

I love Daffodils, they're always so bright and cheerful and a sign that summer is on it way (at last), roll on wearing sandals, picnics in the park and BBQ's!

Anyhoo.... here is a lovely design to get embroidery on with whist stuffing your face with chocolate eggs (Cadbury's Caramel are my faves and probably my undoing!).

The example shown in the images is in a 3 inch embroidery hoop but the PDF pattern includes both the 3 and 6 inch template.

As you can see the whole design is stitched in Satin Stitch.

I tried to make the stitches radiate out from the center of each petal to give it a bit more realism.

The stamen is made up of some straight stitches with little French Knots on the end.

I split the embroidery thread into 3 strands for the most part though the stamen is stitched using just 2.

I'd love to see how you get on with the pattern, don't forget to post your pics on my Facebook Page or tag me @Ohsewbootiful on Instagram
