New Digital Patterns | Inspirations #84 – Part 1
5th May 2023
With Inspirations issue #84 marking the magazine’s 21st birthday, it was all about the value and joy of having friends to share our love of stitching with. No matter the project, we believe our needlework is made just that little bit sweeter by the friends and community we’re able to share it with.
With this in mind, we bring you the first of three projects from issue #84 to be released as new Digital Patterns:
The Bluebird of Happiness by Deborah Love is a charming pincushion featuring Deerfield embroidery. The dainty design adorning the pincushion is a small, exquisite bird with gorgeous florals, finished with a lovely beaded and tasselled edge.
Nicola Jarvis’ Wild Strawberry is a luxurious cushion featuring a sweet silk-embroidered strawberry. Adorned with florals, leaves, splendid gold thread and a bobble fringe, this project is simply exquisite.
Tuscan Treasure by Patricia Girolami utilises an intricate Italian technique to create this charming, knotted tassel, with instructions adaptable to feature any coloured thread of your choosing.
All three projects are now available exactly as they appeared in the magazine, to purchase and download as individual Digital Patterns.
Tune in next week for another instalment of digital patterns from Inspirations issue #84.
