Today I am revealing what has kept me so quiet over the past few months. After hemming and hawing over whether or not to take on a project this big I decided to give it a try. There are not one but three alphabet pattern sets now available at SeptemberHouse!
|starlight letter patterns|
|floral letter patterns|
|art deco letter patterns|
The three styles I narrowed it down to were a floral style that is kind of swirly and fun. It has a few options for stitching too - the 'shadow' and the outline can both be omitted if that is preferred so it can be made a little simpler than it is shown. And art deco inspired design is also available. I love the way the colors look together on my stitched example but I confess, I had an inkling to try it in metallic gold or silver - can you imagine? That metallic thread can be so tricky though so I
chickened opted out. You have to admit though - that would have really given it an art deco flair, am I right? Perhaps a bolder embroiderist will take on that challenge.
The last design is probably my favorite. It's the simplest but I think it's also the cleanest. I called it "Starlight" due to the starburst in the center (and because I could not think up anything else). I added some lengths of 1.5mm cording underneath my satin stitches to give it some added dimension and I LOVE the way it turned out. That is a really easy way to add a little something extra to your embroidery.
Thanks for taking a peek at these new designs, I am thrilled to be able to share them with you today. One more pattern premiere is coming this week!
