Spider Web: Halloween Embroidery Pattern

Autumn is just around the corner so, of course, I'm thinking about Halloween craft projects!

The first slightly spooky project I want to share with you guys this season is a pattern for stitching a spiderweb:

An embroidered spider web would be a great addition to your Halloween decor, or your year-round look if you like a gothic, witchy vibe! 

Stitched on felt and framed in a hoop like this, the web would make a great display for an enamel pin collection with a Halloween / witchcraft / Harry Potter theme.

If you print it at 100% this pattern will fit nicely inside a 6 inch embroidery hoop when finished. For an added gothic touch, you could paint the hoop black!

I used a 7 inch hoop when stitching, sewing the whole pattern with backstitch and three strands of white embroidery thread (floss). I stitched my web on dark grey felt, using tissue paper as shown in this tutorial.

If you’re framing the finished piece in an embroidery hoop, you may wish to add an extra stitch to the ends of the 7 radiating lines to make the design easier to frame without any gaps around the edges.

You'll find the spider web embroidery pattern over on my Patreon.
