A BOLD AND FUNKY NEEDLEPOINT DESIGN THAT ‘GROWS’!


 

With one modular pattern, this free needlepoint design, called ‘Liquorice Allsorts’, can ‘grow’----- from earrings, to hair barrettes, or hair bands (right), or a bracelet! Your choice!

 

You will learn a new stitch, the RHODES Stitch, along with old favourites, the Bargello and Milanese Stitches.

PRAIRIE STYLE  GLASSES OR CELL PHONE CASE

Simplicity and discipline define the Prairie Style!

We’ve created this classic Prairie Style motif, called ‘Ginkgo Prairie’, for your glasses or cell phone as our next free design.

Its simple, dynamic geometric pattern is a perfect contrast to the gentle rhythmic shapes of the ginkgo leaves.

Two stitches helped create this contrast….the Couching Stitch for the bold, linear ginkgo stems and the Long and Short stitch used for its delicacy in the shape and shading of the ginkgo leaves.






'KLIMT'S CHAINS' MAKEUP CASE


Inspired by Gustav Klimt’s Symbolist paintings, we created this stunning small makeup case ‘Klimt’s Chains’ as our next free design. You can make it in 2 different sizes… your choice!  


The Chain Stitch lends itself perfectly to all the twists and swirls that Klimt’s spirals demand! 





‘SCOTS’ SCOTCH’ HAT BAND DESIGN

Stitch this vivid Early-Modernist hat band design inspired by the Glasgow Four using a new stitch to learn…. the Scotch Stitch! 

I’ve purposely incorporated today’s popular hat colours (black, white or straw colour) into the pattern colours, for a coordinated fashion effect.

Check out the many different options for stitching and wearing this dynamic hat band!

"PERSIAN STAR" CARRIAGE CLOCK DESIGN


This FREE carriage clock design “PERSIAN STAR” combines the traditional mahogany wood and classic lines of the small carriage clock from Sudberry House with an intricate Persian motif for the clock face.

An elegant timepiece for your home!





‘POPPIES AND LAVENDER’ SCENTED SACHET DESIGN 

Stitch this traditional Art Nouveau French design, ‘Poppies and Lavender’, to create a scented sachet to be filled with dried lavender flowers.


We’re introducing a technique of leaving some of the natural-canvas exposed as part of the motif and colour scheme, giving the stitching a ‘bas-relief’ effect. 

This technique allows more scent from the lavender to perfume your linen or clothing drawers and wardrobes. 

 This stylized motif will work well in both traditional and contemporary homes!
