(Please be sure to read the entire listing before purchasing!)
This pattern (which accompanies my blog post, "Three Step Embroidered Flowers") is a great way to practice stitching very simple embroidered flowers using just two colors of floss (per flower) and three stitches.
What do you get?
This three page embroidery pattern (delivered in PDF format) includes the following:
- An introduction page with tips and tricks + links to tutorials for all of the stitches and techniques you'll need to know.
- A page with a pattern for transfer (sized for a 3" embroidery hoop when printed on a normal sheet of 8.5x11" computer paper), reference image, color guide, and list of suggested DMC color codes to use.
- A detailed stitch guide indicating the stitch and number of strands of cotton embroidery floss to use for each portion of the pattern.
What size hoop will you need?
When you print this pattern onto a standard 8.5x11" sheet of paper, the pattern for transfer will print out sized for a 3" embroidery hoop.
Want it to be bigger or smaller? You should be able to enlarge the image to fit any size hoop using the PDF reader on your computer or tablet - to do that you'll need to use Google (for example, when I typed in "preview mac enlarge image," I was able to find a handy step-by-step guide for doing this).
What floss colors and fabric will you need?
The pattern itself includes the specific colors from DMC that I used to stitch the sample; the general descriptions of the colors used in this pattern are white, yellow, green, and blue.
I stitched the original hoop onto two layers of white cotton fabric; again, use whatever fabric you have access to or prefer to use!
What stitches do you need to know?
You'll be using a total of three embroidery stitches for this pattern; the pattern itself has links to tutorials for each of these stitches, should you need any instruction!
What else will I need to know?
You'll need to know how to transfer a pattern to your fabric, and how to back your hoop; again, the pattern itself includes direct links to relevant tutorials!
This pattern is for personal use only, which means that you cannot send the pattern to a friend or sell the finished piece. Of course, it's absolutely okay if you want to give the final product as a gift!
That said, I absolutely LOVE to see what people make with my patterns and kits! Please tag me (@hopebroidery) if you post your piece to any social channels so I can tell you how great you did!
