Kim over at String or Nothing has generously released a book of free black work patterns titled Ensamplario Atlantio: Being a Collection of Filling Patterns Suitable for Blackwork Embroidery. I know the title sounds a mouthful, but there are some great traditional patterns in this ebook. This 40 page Ebook of blackwork patterns contains over 220 or so individual all-over or filling patterns for blackwork embroidery.
Some of the patterns perfectly fill a square so good for biscornu pin cushions, or needle books, scissor fobs, sewing caddies, small bags and purses etc and for this time of the year Christmas tree ornaments and the like. In other words you do not have to be interested in historical embroidery to enjoy this Ebook of blackwork patterns. The designs are timeless because they are versatile.
It is a pdf file in four-parts so that it can be downloaded easily.
Friday freebies is a regular series in which I highlight free resources online, free patterns and links that are of interest to fiber folks. All posts in the series are in the Friday Freebie category I hope you enjoy them.
