Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic embroidery stitches like chain stitch, stem stitch

Pattern Description:

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 to print directly onto fabric), a couple of smaller motifs to play around with, and a bonus full-page design.

Each month will bring you one wildflower to embroider, something often seen in Eastern Europe that also appears in folklore embroidery.

Feruary's flower is the common snowdrop: in Hungary it's the first flower that pokes its head out into the air, often amidst patches of snow. It's the flower one dreams of in February, when one can't stop wishing for sun and springtime. To create this design, I played with a snowdrop motif usually used furniture and painted eggs in Gyimes (one of the Hungarian regions of Romania).

The two US letter/A4 size pages of all Bloom of the Month patterns are also designed with a neat trick in mind: you can print two of the pages directly onto fabric using an inkjet printer (instructions included in the PDF file).

Pattern file contains nested test squares (1"by 1" and 2cm by 2cm) to help you make sure the patterns print at the right size.
