Blue flora and bee line pattern

September 17, 2019

Hello everyone hope your week is going well?

I am delighted to let you know that the Blue Flora & Bee Line pattern is now available in the online store. If you follow me on Instagram you would have been following its’ progress and I know some of you have been anxiously awaiting the pattern!

The Blue Flora & Bee line design is reproduced from the artwork of Rachel Pedder Smith who is a botanical artist who trained at the Royal College of Art, London and one of the leading nature artists at Kew Gardens. She kindly granted me permission to adapt her artwork for embroidery and it was an absolute joy to stitch. Each flower, plant, pod or insect presents a new challenge and lots of interest whilst stitching.

The pattern is available as a digital download with an optional iron on transfer – I highly recommend that you purchase the iron on transfer for this pattern as it is quite a detailed tracing outline to do by hand. As this is a very special pattern, you will be pleased to hear that you will also have the option of purchasing a pattern pack, which includes a printed booklet and linen fabric with the design pre-printed. The pattern pack will be available early next week.

Till next time, wherever you are in the world keep smiling and happy stitching.
