Friday: Introducing Nicole

White Rabbit finished
Stitched by Follow the White Bunny

Nicole is a wonderful embroiderer and pattern maker whose cute, dreamy, and fairy-tale inspired designs I am sure you are familiar with. I love how her patterns have inspired a close collaboration with stitcher GeorgiaMcDonald, and all the magic they create together. But Nicole is a creative artist and beautiful stitcher in her own right, and we're ecstatic to have her here, blogging Especially Awesome Stitches and Techniques. :)

Here's a mini-interview with Nicole, let's get to know her!

Your favorite DMC floss color?
DMC 807 (it’s blue) is one of my faves as is the retired DMC Winnie the Pooh Gold, and silvery grey colours too.

Your favorite embroidery project?
A new one! But that’s not what you meant probably…
This is a particular awesome one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/michelamaxwell/3138379716/
And I’m drawn to Penny Nickels Mythical Stamps too: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pennynickels/3414946713/in/set-72157604273980510/ and I could mention lots more!

Your inspirations? other embroiderers, books, vintage patterns and illustrations, history, everyday life.

Your shop url? www.followthewhitebunny.com

One word answer:
Freehand or pattern? Pattern
Messy or neat? Neat
Cute or edgy? Cute (with an edge but in a cute way) :) Sorry I’m also not very good at following rules!

Don't follow the rules? We hear you, Nicole! :) Welcome!

  2. Love Nicole's designs, and I'm in the process of finishing up some pillowcases embellished with her hibernating bear pattern. Her work is charming!
