Friends, here is the first ever Bloom of the Month embroidery pattern, Snowdrop!
Each Bloom of the Month pattern explores a single motif – folklore-inspired, usually – and/or a single stitching technique. These patterns include one main design that prints cleanly at US Letter or A4 size (should you wish to use your ink jet printer Read More…→

Here’s something I had a little fun with when I was making samples for one of the new hot-iron embroidery transfer sheets (Bewitching Botanicals):
Random stitch sampler! I tried to use quick and casual (and I think easy) stitches, though I did flip through my trusty Embroidery Stitch BibleRead More…→
After yesterday’s launch of the embroidery patterns and hot iron transfers, I’ve added a few more items for some last-minute Christmas shopping. (Wait, you don’t do that? Hmmm…)
There are some more pretty fabrics, folksy ribbons, and more.
Look, even something for a little girl in your life:
These were SUCH a long time in the making. Almost a year and a half, to be precise. But they’re finally here! Folksy hot-iron embroidery transfers, not just one but FOUR sheets:
I couldn’t be more excited. Thrilled even. I’ve been stitching up a storm testing them, prepping sample cloths, and I have to say, this iron-on stuff Read More…→
While working away at one of the several things I’m preparing for you guys (I hope to be ready to announce it soon), I did make progress on the embroidered shoulder pieces for the Róza blouse. In fact, I’m all done with the embroidery. As soon as I get a chance, I’ll sew up the whole blouse and post the pattern for you to download and stitch up. It’s nothing complicated – just a kind of Read More…→
Friends, just a quick note to let you know I did a little update on the PDF version of the Róza pattern.
It now includes a print-at-copyshop option – i.e. a file I formatted so that you can take it to a copyshop and print it out on 36″ (90 cm) wide paper. The Read More…→
Friends, it is that time of year: to buy and make gifts (or just buy and make stuff to a degree never otherwise repeated during the year!).
This year, I’ve put together a holiday shop with a collection of items that would make great gifts for anyone who likes folklore-inspired sewing and embroidery.
The shop is now open, stocked with the Róza pattern (of course!), along with Read More…→
The first new item to come to the shop isn’t quite entirely new – Róza paper patterns are back in stock! I promise there are other, completely new items coming too. But I owed you this first, especially after how many of you have emailed me wanting a paper pattern after the first (tiny) run sold out.
Let me present to you the Róza DIY peasant blouse kit:
This is only one of three kits available now at an introductory price (really – I’ll never be able to make these happen for the same price again). Go take a look!
There were several things I really wanted to do with these kits. One, I wanted to make it really Read More…→
Another pretty Róza blouse sewn up by Chrissy! Take a look:
Chrissy used a double gauze fabric with smaller checks on one side and large checks on the other, making the front panel in the “reverse” of the rest of the blouse.
I love the effect! Chrissy is a very creative seamstress who I was Read More…→
