Q&A with Eva Blue

Carolyn Moyer asked:
Are these machine embroidery and do you have the pattern?
Eva Blue answered:
Hi - the machine embroidery designs are from Embroidery library. The "pattern" is simply a rectangle rounded at one end using a saucer... Search this website for "vintage signs" - http://www.emblibrary.com/ I used an upholstery-weight linen with a layer of stabiliser and iron-on interfacing as the embroidery is quite dense.
