Hand applique hand over-dyed wool of your choice into whimsical houses and flower gardens. This pattern is only available as a digital download. Pattern includes 6 offset blocks to avoid bulk in the intersections. Applique overlaps the seams and prevents a static look to this wall hanging which finishes to approximately 23" x 35". An option you may want to consider is using a single, large background rather than multiple blocks. Instructions are included for simple applique stitches used which include blanket, stab, bullion, drizzle, and more. You are welcome to showcase your own assortment of stitches to create a uniquely beautiful work of art. Silk ribbon creates leaves using the Japanese ribbon stitch. Threads used in embroidery are 12 wt cotton, wool, hand dyed silk ribbon (4mm & 7mm). Minimal beading is added for sparkle. The pattern includes templates that are NOT mirror images (useful if you are not using fusible web) and also mirror imaged if you are creating yours using fusible web to tack it to the background.
The downloadable file is a zip file. To open the zip file simply Right Click on the File Folder, then choose Extract All. Save the individual files to your computer. You can then open each file and print the pattern if you prefer a hard copy. I recommend storing the 49 pages of pattern, templates and instructions in a 3 ring binder. Enjoy the journey!
