Wow! It's great to be here. My name is Jo, otherwise known as Mrs. Lacer and I will be blogging here on Feeling Stitchy, every Sunday, about new (or relatively new) embroidery patterns out there. One of the many things I love about embroidery is how many great embroidery patterns are being created; both commercially from small businesses and independent sellers and as lovely freebies from the embroidery community as a whole. So, my aim is to highlight at least one new commercially available pattern and one new free pattern a week.
To start off, I thought I'd go for a bit of a bird theme, I've had fun this week embroidering patterns from Etsy seller revidevi, who is currently holding a 'Buy 3 Get 1 Free' sale. Her patterns are sent out as .pdfs. The .pdfs I received were all seven pages long and featured the design repeated in bold line, reversed, reduced and with colour suggestions.
I've already embroidered revidevi's Birdncity design, the city buildings beneath the bird were very fun to do and I'm currently embroidering Weird Tree and Birds, which has some fantastic curves (I don't know about anyone else, but I love embroidering smooth, curved lines!).
Most of revidevi's designs feature birds and / or trees, so definitely a pattern shop to check out if you like those sort of things (I do!).
Now onto the featured free pattern; I found this one specially for those still searching for some Valentine's inspiration; Sibling Craftery have a lovely sheet of free embroidery designs, specially for Valentine's Day, featuring lots of different hearts, a pair of cute dogs and these two 'tweet hearts', which I've embroidered up for my husband's Valentine card!
