What you made
Several of you recently posted lovely examples of what you made with the Róza pattern and some of my hot-iron transfer embroidery patterns, and I love them so much I wanted to show them here as well. Laurie made a cute winter flannel Róza blouse (via Kollabora):
Laurie made the Róza with long sleeves, straight front, and a high-low hemline. I love the mustard skirt she paired with it, don't you? Just looking at Laurie's outfit makes the freezing weather we've been having lately feel a little less cold.
On that note, I can't stop thinking of flowers and spring, so while it's still snowing outside, here's some folksy embroidery! In December I'd asked a couple of bloggers who like folksy embroidery to review the Kate & Rose hot iron transfers, and last week Dóra and Starr showed some stunning projects they'd made. Dóra grew up in Budapest (like me), and I knew she loves Hungarian embroidery and is very creative and an excellent embroiderer. She created a project based on one of the designs from Cabbage Rose Fancy by doing something unexpected: she transferred the image onto canvas and painted it! Here is the result - a lovely piece of folklore-inspired home decor:
Isn't it lovely? Read Dóra's entire post to find out more about her project.
Starr created two projects using designs from the Bewitching Botanicals pattern set. She stitched red flowers to embellish jeans:
Red-hot flowers in the snow! Gorgeous. Starr also made a sweet felt Valentine's day heart - I love the idea of using the embroidery transfers on felt:
The color combination is so pretty. Find out more on Starr's blog. (All images used with permission.)
