Coming up: Róza blouse series, embroidery patterns, & more!

It’s been a looooong few weeks here at Kate & Rose HQ (I’ve always wanted to say that). Traveling hubby, sick kids, tons of work unrelated to embroidery or the Róza blouse, but finally I see light at the end of the tunnel. (Which really only means I can get to work on the next thing… hmmm…) And now I’m up to my neck in getting a bunch of things ready for you guys in preparation.

For example, fabric candy! Look:

fabrics for Roza blouse

I’m planning to cut into these lovelies in preparation for some of the things I’ve got coming up for you in the next few weeks:

  • Róza blouse sewalong! I’ll have a schedule and details for you sometime next week. In the meantime, you can grab your pattern on Etsy or Craftsy! We’ll go over the details of making this blouse as well as variations, and embroidery!
  • Free embroidery pattern inspired by Northern Hungarian folkwear, suitable for the Róza, or even a t-shirt you already have on hand (tutorial coming up on how to stitch this design on a t-shirt)
  • Several embroidery patterns I’m preparing for sale, along with tutorials for a couple of neat ways to transfer embroidery patterns to dark and/or coarse fabrics, like denim – I’m getting ready to stitch the back of this shirt here, look:

  • And several other things I’m DYING to share but can’t just yet … ; )

    A sew along sounds great! And embroidery patterns too! That’s actually what I am struggling with right now. I am having a difficult time coming up with a pattern for the panel of the Roza blouse. I am making one out of knit fabric also and wanted to applique the panel Alabama Chanin style – again, stuck on the design. I think I am trying to squeeze in too much and it is just not working. So, maybe it would be easier if the decision would be made for me, and just use your pattern. That way I would actually finish one blouse at least!

    By the way, that design on the back of the denim shirt looks beautiful.

    Dora, Alabama Chanin-style applique is a great idea! Now you’ve made me start thinking about it too… 🙂 Always too many things to make!

    And thank you, I’m hoping the finished embroidered shirt will also look nice.

      I think we all wish we could grow a few extra arms and have more hours in a day. Too many ideas, not enough time. The few boxes of fabric, beads, yarn and other craft supplies I have not touched for a long time is proof that I always think I am superwoman and can do it all. Ha. Well, maybe you will beat me to it and get something fun done in Alabama Chanin applique style!
