New: Sky Turtle Embroidery Patterns

Today I’m launching a new series: the Sky Turtle Embroidery Patterns, starting this summer with the ICONS mini-collection. The first of the four embroidery patterns is Frida.

We only email when we publish new content and we will not share your address with anyone else. Next month, you will also receive the new embroidery pattern, right in your inbox!

What’s in the pack?

A high quality printable PDF with the Frida pattern in five different sizes, so you can embroider a tiny logo on a polo shirt, decorate a skirt or embroider a pillowcase.

How to use the embroidery pattern

There are several ways to transfer your printed patter to fabric: you can trace it with a pencil, using a window and the light of day, or you can use tracing paper.

Another way to transfer your pattern is to print directly on your fabric. I press and then tape the fabric on a piece of cardboard and print as usual. Disclaimer: please use this method at your own risk! I’ve used it a few times, but I am okay with potentially jamming/destroying my printer. In case you are not, better stick with the tracing method 🙂

How to embroider Frida

This embroidery pattern is beginner friendly. You can only use a back stitch if you want. I’ve used satin stitches for her hair and flowers, but feel free to use your creativity.

I recommend using a medium weight woven fabric for this pattern. I’ve embroidered my sample on a gauzy woven fabric and it puckers a little. You could also embroider on a heavier knit or polo fabric.

That’s it. If you use it, I’d love to see the end result!

These last few days were cold and rainy. Even though they were the perfect time to enjoy the smell of hot roasted chestnuts in yout chicken :D, i felt the need to do something to cheer me up. So I started doodling and made this embrodery patterns for you to download and sew!

This is an original artwork by SkyTurtle so please don’t use this pattern in any commercial purposes. Do use it to give a personal and happy feeling to the objects around you 😀

I specially reccomend them for pillows, scarfs, or tshirts.

So I present you:

Instructions for use:

  1. Choose the right embroidery floss needle, and the fabric you want to embroider on.
  2. If the fabric is light, use fusing interface.
  3. Print out the patter.
  4. If the fabric is white of of a pale colour, put the paper against a window and trace the pattern with a pencil (it will wash). If not use carbon paper to trace the pattern onto your fabric. If you have an inkjet printer you can try ironing the paper – with the print facing the fabric. (Be aware that your patter will be fliped on your piece of fabric!)
  5. Get cozy, get a cup of tea, put some nice music and start embroidering! 🙂

 

I would love to see your work!
