Projects you won’t find in any of our books or magazines.

Handpicked is a collection of new projects available exclusively as individual patterns.

Our latest Handpicked project is ‘Vivace’ by Di Kirchner, a suberb silk box resplendent with colourful flowers and tiny insects.

Pale gold silk and a vibrant palette of watermelon pinks, olive greens and slate blues are used to create this splendid box.

Perfect for holding your most treasured possessions, the box is fully lined and the lid features a quatrefoil design, with each lobe filled with a spectacular pink flower.

Each box side features a floral design and a tiny insect, echoing the small creatures that inhabit the large flowers.

The lid is finished with an old gold twisted cord and the handle is encrusted with matching beads.

The instructions for ‘Vivace’ are now available to purchase as a printed pattern which we’ll post to you anywhere in the world, or you can buy it as a digital pattern to download instantly.
