This sampler is a great way to get more familiar with Central European folklore embroidery, or just to broaden your repertory of embroidery stitches. Step-by-step photo tutorials take you through each of the five designs, with each stitch carefully broken down to help you execute the designs with ease. Each post also gives a bit of background on the design, along with photographs showing alternate color schemes you can try. The entire tutorial series can be accessed through this page.
I stitched the sampler onto a tank top but folksier, raglan-sleeved blouses would also work great for this sampler, such as the Róza top; please take a look at the diagram design placement suggestions. Each motif can be used individually as well for an entirely different look. The design would also look beautiful as a table runner or on a throw pillow.
Sampler recommended for confident beginners.
