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.
You can download the free embroidery pattern by subscribing to our newsletter here. You’ll instantly receive the download link.
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!
