New Digital Patterns | Inspirations #86 – Part 1
17th March 2023
Continuing our mission to catalogue all the projects from Inspirations magazine and release them as digital patterns, next up is issue #86.
This issue, in particular, featured a number of projects focused on lace, or techniques that utilise lace, in a multitude of ways. With this in mind, we have no doubt you’ll find the first three digital pattern instalments delicate and irresistible!
Paola Matteucci’s Flowers of Panicale is a gorgeous evening bag featuring the traditional Italian embroidery technique Ars Panicalensis. The intricate designs are created by weaving threads through the fabric itself. Stitched in vibrant colours, this showstopping project is the perfect accessory for any night out.
Little Gem by Catherine Barley is a wonderful strawberry fob, featuring needlelace embroidery. Embellished with layers of pea stitch, corded Brussels stitch and intricate gold beads, this is a fabulously fun project.
Elena Dickson’s Turkish Delight is a beautiful muslin scarf heavily inspired by the eastern Mediterranean. With needlelace flowers adorning the fabric, and featuring Bibilla knotted lace florals, this delicately embroidered piece is the perfect summer project.
