Friday Freebie Hand Embroidery Pattern

free hand embroidery patternI have another free hand embroidery design for readers this week. To work a design like this I suggest you use linear stitches such as stem stitchback stitch, and chain stitch. You can use satin stitch to fill in the shapes.  Patterns such as these are ideal for items such as pincushions, needle cases or needle books, small cushions, small bags or you could use it as a Biscornu pattern. What ever you use it for I hope you enjoy it.

Ebook of blackwork patterns

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.
