New Iron On Embroidery Patterns from SeptemberHouse

Stitches Del Sol Mexican inspired Hand Embroidery Iron on Transfer Patterns

Iron on transfers may be one of the most traditional transfer methods for hand embroidery but they are also one of the most popular. They make transferring your design to your fabric so easy and so clear. For some, it's the only method they trust. That's why I am so excited to say that two more SeptemberHouse pattern sets are now available as iron on transfers.

Holiday Embroidery Patterns Iron On Patterns SeptemberHouse

The two new sets are the Stitches Del Sol Collection - a vibrant folk-style set of Mexican-inspired designs and Holiday Special - a mix of the most popular Christmas designs from three different pattern collections.

Thanks for taking a peek at these new offerings from SeptemberHouse. Find all the SeptemberHouse patterns - both iron on and digital downloads here.

Cozy up with a good book

Hello! Here we are in the deep dark heart of Winter (unless you are lucky enough to be somewhere in the southern hemisphere - yes I AM jealous). As I walked back from the mailbox this morning every part of me that was not covered was screaming to go back inside. These are the days when the wind is actually painful.

The good news is that this is also a GREAT time of year to cozy up with some good reads. I want to share one with you today called "Boho Embroidery: Modern Projects from Traditional Stitches" by Nichole Vogelsinger. First for a disclosure - one of the patterns from my Booksmart pattern set makes a small cameo in this book and Nichole was nice enough to say some really sweet things about it as she wrote about seeking out meaningful patterns for your projects. Thanks Nichole! But today I want to share some of the OTHER reasons I loved this book.

The ideas here are bright and fresh and one cannot help but be cheered just looking at them. Anyone who loves fabric and pattern will enjoy flipping through these pages as their creative wheels start turning. This book will make you look at your fabric stash in a whole new light.

Are you someone who loves to embroider but you are not always sure what to do with your embroidery projects - how to frame them in new ways or turn them into a unique gift? This book has plenty of inspiration for you. Good news guys - there are so many more options than just the round wooden hoop! 

I often hear from people who tell me that they are picking up hand embroidery again after having not done it for years. They are looking for a refresher on the basics as well as ideas for projects that go beyond traditional applications and motifs. For those people I cannot recommend this book enough. Nichole looks at hand embroidery with a fresh vision that is displayed beautifully in this book. Go on, check it out!
