contemporary embroidery patterns

Starting with embroidery is not as difficult as it may look if you choose the right pattern. Everybody has his/her own pace with catching up on techniques. We can’t measure the difficulty of a pattern with scientific terms, but a good rule of thumb is: the more stitches are used for a pattern, the more it will challenge your embroidery skills.

All of my contemporary embroidery patterns include basic information on how to embroider, the motif for printing and color numbers for DMC threads.
