feathers embroidery pattern by Pumora

This feathers embroidery pattern is an oldie of mine. One summer I got really obsessed with doodling many many tiny drawings of one theme. One was wizards (think the surroundings of Harry Potter), then there were kitchen and garden tools, of course, a sheet with crafting supplies and one was this feathery one. It's so fun to brain storm the many shapes and sizes feathers can be. In the course of updating all of my older embroidery patterns, the feather embroidery pattern got a whole new make over! It now includes lots of additional instructions on how to transfer and embroider this pattern. Also, I wanted to make it in another color palette (it has been brown, yellow, and white before). How do you like the blue one?

The new version of the feathers embroidery pattern is available now on Etsy

It's a beginner level pattern. All you need to......

The making of a magpie blazer

On the weekend, I felt the urge to embroider something for myself. I had found my favorite black blazer I was wearing extensively before moving here. I don't know why, but it got buried in a box and it was not until now, that I discovered it again. So instead of stitching up the magpie pattern on yet another hoop wall art thingy, it wanted to be embroidered on this blazer! The blazer has a black and white stripe pattern which works so great with the magpie pattern. magpie blazer by Pumora

1// With yellow transfer paper - I think it's chalk - I traced the magpie on the blazer. The yellow lines disappear very quickly, so I took a white chalk pencil and drew the lines that vanish too fast.

embroidery pattern: the geometric rabbit

hase8 Continueing the geometric animals series, here comes the rabbit - or easter bunny. This one is a really really fast embroidery project. Like the others it's stitched in running stitch using pearl cotton and then threaded on the outline, nose and eyes. I could imagine this for easter decoration but in a kid's room, too. So much bunny literature out there to match the theme. Buy here: craftsy dawanda etsy makerist kollabora hase7 hase4 Here are the rabbit's geometric pals:

free pattern: the absence of a snowflake

This is pattern is more like a guideline. Chaotic stitching is never really stuff for patterns because it's well - chaotic. Nevertheless this time the chaotic stitching takes place around a defined shape.

materials
grey felt - depending on your size of embroidery. If you chose to make it 11cm/4.33inch the felt should be about 25x25cm/10x10inch embroidery floss - white DMC B5200, yellow DMC 745, blue DMC 807 1. First print the snowflake pattern to the size you want. Mine is 11cm/4.33inch. There should be at least 2cm/0.8inch to every side for the outside stitching. Cut out the snowflake.   revsnowmuster revsnow1a 2. Then pin the papercut onto your felt. Watch out to center it perfectly. revsnow2 3. Begin to stitch around the papercut pattern with white embroidery floss (1stranded). It's important to stitch into the......

Kristall no 2: Opal

The Opal is a shiny and colourful gem. It changes it's intensity and colors depending on the way you look at it. I wanted to capture the dynamic and playful colors with this one. While the center is very solid and compact, the mor you go to the outer sections the more it disintegrates into a hint of stitches and paling colors.

The lion is out

lion4 I have shown you the lion sketch I made two weeks ago. Well the lion is all stitched up and I've made a brand new embroidery pattern out of it! It's worked with pearl cotton on white(ish) linen in running stitch and threaded running stitch - an easy project and perfect for beginners. I like how the outline of the face pops out because of the solid lines in contrast to the dashed ones. The face is mirrored to the right side and I managed to forget some lines on each side - duh! Can you spot them? Nevertheless I'll leave it with this, because there is nothing meant to be perfect in this world.
