Free Sampler Pattern!

by Sammy Bishop

This pattern is in a lovely sampler style - designed to teach you 8 basic hand embroidery stitches.

These samplers are easy to make with spare materials at home -  you can change it according to your own colour schemes; or just grab some scrap fabric and spare threads, and get stitching!

The example here was made in a 6 inch hoop, on teal Klona cotton. I used DMC threads in colours 602 (bright pink), 3801 (coral/red), 3765 (blue), 972 (yellow), 3812 (teal), E168 (silver), 327 (purple), 3853 (orange), and 916 (dark pink).

I made this sampler as a way to experiment with colours for new projects. I knew I wanted to use the teal fabric - so the next stage was to choose my favourite colour combinations!

I'm excited to start working on new designs, using this sampler as a reference point - watch this space for new developments!
