New Digital Pattern | Vintage

18th February 2022

We received a request from a reader for a pattern from way back in Inspirations issue #41. It is a beautiful embroidery, so we’re so glad Beth Marshall contacted us as we’re sure everyone will appreciate it.

Beth wrote: ‘I’m wondering if you can help me find a pattern from Inspirations issue #41. It is a lovely pattern of a grapevine that I would like to attempt.

Unfortunately, I have mislaid my copy of this issue. I have probably lent it to a friend as I’ve looked high and low and still can’t find it.’

Vintage by Judy Stephenson is an exquisite bag featuring a sprig of vine and a bunch of grapes all cleverly worked in Casalguidi embroidery.

This is an enormously satisfying form of whitework that originated in Italy in the 19th century and is traditionally worked in monochrome. The texture of this technique is amazing and Vintage is an heirloom project if there ever was one.

Vintage is now available to purchase and download as a digital pattern.

If you have a project from a past issue of Inspirations you would like released as a digital pattern, just send us a request and we’ll add it to our list.
