Five new Scandinavian style hand embroidery patterns

I love the clean, crisp look of Scandinavian design and wanted to try and emulate that with these new patterns. I also wanted to experiment with limited colour palettes - Scandi Birds uses just two shades of blue. To balance things out, I used a variety of different stitches, keeping the designs interesting to embroider.

There are five designs in the Scandi range - birds, flowers, fruit, hearts and a teapot with teacup - all with a distinctly Scandinavian feel and stitched in bold colours.








The patterns are available in my Etsy and Craftsy shops as instant digital downloads, and in my online shop for South African embroiderers as PDFs emailed within 48 hours. They include a complete requirements list, instructions for three different transfer methods and clear embroidery instructions. The design is given at actual size and in reverse for creating iron-on transfers.
