April Showers embroidery sampler

I love embroidery. I'm always on the lookout for screenprinted embroidery samplers. My sister gave me a screenprinted Sea Captain sampler for Christmas and it's awesome. I'm a huge fan of iron-on transfers, and I pay extra for those if they're an option (vs digital downloads). If iron-on transfers aren't an option I'll settle for a PDF pattern but I'll be cursing the whole time I'm tracing it on to the fabric. I've tried everything short of buying a light table and Sublime Stitching's brand new fine-tip transfer pens. I refuse to breakdown and buy a light table, but I may be ordering the transfer pens soon.

Anywho, in my search for embroidery patterns that I don't have to trace I've discovered that Spoonflower swatches are only $5 and fit perfectly in a 6-inch embroidery hoop. I've found a few cute swatch-size embroidery patterns at Spoonflower like this and this. But there should be more.

There is one more now - my April Showers embroidery pattern. I ordered a swatch on Kona cotton and I love it. If you want to stitch one, you can find it here.



I'm working on a color palette. Blue raindrops? Rainbow raindrops? I'm planning to do french knots for the cloud and satin stitch for the raindrops. I'll be an expert at both by the time I'm done!

  12. You could be forgiven for thinking that computerized Brother sewing and embroidery machines are beyond the novice. Nothing could be further from the truth. You probably think you already need to be able to embroider manually, likewise sew, to be able to understand the machine.
