As a stitcher who loves crazy quilting, I designed this second set of templates with fellow stitchers in mind. I have aimed to create a set of templates that could be as versatile as possible.
Many of the shapes in this set are ideal for floral designs to use in your embroidery projects but these same shapes can also be used for bead embroidery too.
With my Stitchers Templates Set 2, you are able to create hundreds of different patterns to embroider on your crazy quilting projects. They are easy to use, and they are made of clear plastic so you can position them easily and they are compact – just the right size to fit in your sewing box.
To show how the templates could be used, I wrote an ebook and drafted out lots of patterns. It’s free when you purchase the templates. The link to your free ebook is sent to your email once you purchase the templates.
Using the templates is easy. Just position the template and hold it firmly with one hand, then use a quilter’s pencil to trace along the edge of the template to create the pattern.
I am sure once you start using my templates you will think of many more designs!
There are a number of different curved lines that allow you to create many organic type designs. They are ideal for floral sprays and the like. This type of motif is an obvious way to use the curved linear elements but not so obvious is that you can also use them to create frames and other types of flourishes in your work.
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. Here is a sneak peek inside the ebook:
Since the templates are clear this also makes them easy to flip over and create a mirrored pattern. This aspect of their design adds tremendous versatility to their use.
Using the shapes found on the edge of each template you can create numerous seam embellishments.
A key feature of these templates is that you will find a number of curves and flourishes, which you can use to build the stems and vines of floral motifs.
I have kept the templates small so that they fit easily into a sewing box. That way, if you are travelling to a workshop or to a local stitching get-together, you are not cluttering up your supplies with large templates. And to ensure the highest quality, the templates are made in Australia.
