Spring is in the air so let’s stitch up some beautiful tropical flowers! My new pattern release, the Hibiscus Digital Embroidery Pattern, comes in multiple sizes and colorways so you can make this design your own. Add this embroidery to your handmade makes and beautifully embellish jackets, robes, dresses, bags, pillows, home goods and much more. Perfect for refashioning Ready to Wear clothing and home goods. I wanted to design this pattern to be extremely versatile and adaptable. It’s my most ambitious project to date and I really hope you’ll give it a try!
This pattern is geared toward Intermediate Embroiders, but an adventurous beginner will be able to make this with a bit of practice. Learn some fun new stitches while creating beautiful and wearable art. I designed this to stitch up relatively quickly to make this large scale design a relaxing project.
This pattern will teach you 10 Embroidery Stitches:
- Split Stitch
- Chain Stitch
- French Knots
- Long and Short
- Raised Stem Band
- Raised Chain Band
I really love learning new and interesting stitches and this pattern offers a really fun set of stitches to keep you motivated. I especially love the Raised Stitches. They look so interesting but stitch up so quickly!
I purposely designed this pattern so it could be stitched up pretty quickly. Which is a real bonus if your working this up in the larger sizes. My samplers show the flower petals filled with Satin and Long and Short Stitches but these can be skipped all together to create an airy and modern look.
I’m about to start embroidering a lounge jacket out of a gorgeous salmon colored silk using the scroll patterns. I can’t wait to get started! If this project seems a bit too ambitious be sure to check out my beginner Sampler pockets. They’re easy to stitch up while teaching you the basics of embroidery.
Below you’ll find my Inspiration Board. I’ve pinned a ton of cool Indie Patterns and Fashion Embroidery that would work beautifully with my pattern.
Hibiscus Embroidery Inspiration
I had such fun designing these patterns and all the fashion flats and graphics that go along with it. I love that this pattern can be a simple as a floral hoop design or intricate full fashion embroidery. My tip is to work the sampler size first to practice your stitches and then move on to the large scale versions. This is especially nice to test your floss and fabric combinations.
And of course I have a full video stitch tutorial to accompany this pattern. It’s a long one at 45 minutes so I timestamped the stitches to make viewing a bit easier. Everyone learns in different ways. I myself like illustrations but I wanted to have a bit of everything included to help you learn in whatever way works best for you. I also have beginner embroidery videos on my channel if you need more help.
Back soon with some more sewn makes! I’ve been doing some pattern testing which I hope to be able to share soon and have a few wearable muslins ready to share. Next I have to get working on my Capsule Travel Wardrobe for Greece! Tickets are bought so I really have to get sewing. I hope you love my new pattern as much as I do!
