Rosie and Bear are enjoying a good story, perched together on the largest pile of books you've ever seen ....
This is a sampler for the 21st century, showcasing stitches such as herringbone, couched filling stitch, scroll stitch, chessboard filling stitch, French knots and buttonhole stitch. Full instructions to work each stitch are given, together with details of the DMC floss colours used, together with mirrored versions of the pattern so you can use the transfer method you prefer.
You can also download a copy of my free guide "How to Embroider Fur" to help you with that fuffy bear - it's easy when you know how - just CLICK HERE to view and download.
Hi - I'm Helen and I started my online pattern business, Bustle & Sew, in 2009. I hope I'm creating designs that are lively, interesting and fresh and that they will inspire others to pick up fabric and thread to make their own project, with all the sense of achievement and satisfaction that brings. I love stitching and am passionate about sharing with others through my blog and online magazine. I live in Devon, England in an old farmhouse near the sea with my Newfoundland dog, Ben - Townie husband is here at the weekends to help walk him!
