Just wanted to give you a heads-up that next week I am posting a pattern for a brand-new freebie, exclusive to the Emma Broidery blog!
Stitch this super Seaside Sampler in DMC Embroidery Floss on plainweave fabric, and then color the design with PrismaColor® pencils! The wax-based pencils are a terrific way to add color or detail to any embroidery project that will not be washed (the color is added after washing/pressing the design after working the embroidery.
The sampler fits a standard 8×10″ picture frame and features a quote from author Ralph Waldo Emerson, an American Poet, Lecturer and Essayist, 1803-1882 .
It’s perfect as a framed piece of art for the beach house, or turn it into a fabulous pillow by adding printed fabric borders, a backing and some stuffing.
I’ve posted the color key above so you can gather your supplies. You’ll only need a single skein of each color, along with a 14×18″ piece of cotton or linen fabric (broadcloth is fine), emroidery needles, hoop and colored pencils.
The pattern posts here on Monday, June 3rd!
