Floral Hoop Art Pattern: Coming Soon!

UPDATE: this pattern is now available as a printable PDF from my shop. 


Sometimes you get a bit of inspiration out of the blue and you just have to run with it.

At the weekend I'd planned to finish up July's (slightly delayed!) free project for my newsletter subscribers but ended up working on August's freebie instead. I thought it would be nice to do a floral embroidery pattern, sat down to sketch a few ideas during my teabreak, got totally sucked in to the process, and now my desk looks like this:

As you can see the planned embroidery pattern is turning into a bit of felt hoop art (you know how much I love a nice bit of felt), but there'll be plenty of embroidered details as well. I love how this design is developing, and I hope you guys will love it too!

I'll be sending out July's sea-inspired pattern later this week, then later this month subscribers to my pattern newsletter will get this floral design in their inbox. As well as the templates and step by step instructions for making the floral hoop art I'll be including a version of the design as an embroidery pattern so you can sew that if you'd prefer.

I'll share photos of the finished design sometime soon, but in the meantime you can sign up to my monthly free pattern newsletter here.

Beautiful colors and pattern, as always! I'm tempted to try simple embroidery stitches again (I did some at school and that was ages ago) and probably will for some long planned refashion project :)

I love where this is going, it's so pretty! Looking forward to seeing where you go with this. I'm playing with felt and embroidery too right now, and it's so fun :)

bairozan - thank you! I am rubbish at fancy embroidery stitches, but you can do a lot of lovely things with the simple ones!! :)

Aurelia Eglantine - thanks! :) Felt + embroidery = an EXCELLENT combo :D

Linda - Ooh, this is lovely to hear! I'll be sending this project out around the 25th of August, so look out for it in your inbox xx
