I am at a loss as to where this year is going! The weeks fly by and I am buried in my sewing room and always seem to be behind where I want to be. I don't seem to be in any rhythm at all - perhaps my compass has gone haywire because of all this crazy weather we are having - I mean it is the 18th of March and we have snow....
Anyhow, my four hashtag embroidery designs are now finished. I am pretty thrilled with them and having already written about the first two - here are the second two. First up is 'Hashtag Imagine'.
I love the versatility of this design as you can customise it to be your bookshelf or that of someone else. It is easy to do with appliqué motifs and yet it is cheerful and fun and easy to let your imagination run away with ideas.
Using different fabrics and colour ways transforms how it looks so you can customise it to suit any room and anybody.
The final hashtag is 'Create'.
My daughter loves to paint and I love the seaside so I guess it is not hard to see where my inspiration came from. Of course the design also makes the perfect cover for a sketchbook.
Not only would this make a very special gift, but you can make it entirely your own with more or less embroidery and you can use the machine or do hand work to complete the pattern. There is a free tutorial on tutorials page if you would like some help with making one.
Now that they are all finished, I think they look so lovely all together. What a great idea for a playroom or a family room - something for everyone I hope.
These patterns are all up as downloadable pdfs in my etsy shop and printed patterns and kits will be coming in the next couple of weeks.
Next time... a little patchwork elephant.
Bye for now, Ruby x
