Stitchers Templates Set 1

ebook cover Sharon B's CQ StencilsStitchers Templates Set 1 was the first set of templates I designed for hand embroiderers and Crazy quilters- hence the name. I created them with the aim of making a tool that is as versatile as possible. As a stitcher who loves crazy quilting I designed these templates with other hand embroiderers in mind. With them you are able to create hundreds of different patterns to embroider on your crazy quilting projects. They are easy to use, totally clear so you can position them easily and they are compact in your sewing box.

To  show how the templates could be used, I wrote an ebook and drafted out numerous patterns. Links to your ebook are sent to your paypal email.

I am sure once you start using my templates you will think of many more designs! Here is a sneak peek inside the book showing you how you can design your own seam embellishments and  patterns.

When I designed the templates I thought in terms of having enough space to tuck my favourite stitches, beads, small floral lace motifs and favourite silk ribbon embroidery flowers into the spaces in the patterns produced.

patterns created using Sharon B's CQ StencilsAt first glance many patterns look large but the extra space gives your embroidery room to grow. In some of the patterns I have included space for buttons and large beads to be incorporated as people often get stumped on how to include larger items such as buttons in crazy quilting.

Using the shapes found on the edge of each stencil you can create numerous seam embellishments but a key feature of these stencils is that you will find a number of curves and flourishes, with which, you can build the stems and vines of floral motifs. By using the flourish shapes, the curves of the paisley shape, heart shapes and by using segments of the oval and disk shapes, you can create numerous designs yourself.

The flowers are buttons and I decorated the stems of this floral spray with detached chain stitch (also known as Lazy Daisy) and straight stitches.

In this sample I used hand dyed perle #5 cotton. As a finishing touch I added a few seed beads and a few small pearls.

I have kept the templates small so that they fit easily into a sewing box. Anyone who knows me, knows I like things compact.  Their compact size means if you are travelling to a workshop or to a local stitching get together you are not cluttering up your supplies with lots of large templates.

I hope these templates motivate people to discover your creativity.

This is another seam I have recently embroidered using the hexagon shape. Or I should say half of the hexagon shape.

I traced a line of half hexagons along the seam. I then embroidered them in threaded chain stitch using perle cotton #5. Next I added beads and bead tassels!

    • sharonb says:

      Rosemary – I have just sent you an email but wanted to add when the buy button takes you to paypal follow the instruction from there to confirm the sale. If you do not have a pay pal account you need to set one up.

    I would like to order both set of your stencils. (1&2). I live in Alsace France. Is it possible for you to send them to me here? Thank you for you help in advance.

  18. Sue Shiel says:

    I would like to order set one too please. Can you let me know when they are available again.

    • sharonb says:

      Hi Sue I just dropped you an email to say I have added you to the list of people I will email when they are back in stock ( hopefully they will be here in a day or so)

  19. Ann says:

    I would like to order both sets. Is there a way to pay for both and save money on shipping?

    • sharonb says:

      Ann I dropped you an email but the shipping charges go up if I combine them. If I post individually Australia post classifies them as flat package they can go at letter parcel rate. If I pack two together they become a parcel and Australia post charges me more for parcel than a letter parcel and the two together cost more than two posted individually. I don’t understand the logic but it works out that if you want 2 sets it is cheaper individually.

  20. Kaye Hallahan says:

    I am also looking to purchase Set 1, can you add me to your email list to advise when your new stock arrives.

  21. Stevii says:

    • sharonb says:

      JO I just sent you a copy of an email I sent on the 17th of feb when you ordered the templates – it has the link to the module in it. Check your spam folder as both might have gone there
