fizzy florals

© 2017 Paper Island Ltd. Fizzy Moon © Paper Island Ltd Produced under licence. Fizzy Moon is enjoying the joys of summer and the wonderful variety of vibrant flowers and pretty plants that bloom during this special time of year. And, if you stitch this design and frame it as a gift, someone you love will be able to appreciate these fantastic florals all year round. The much-loved cuddly bear will make the perfect birthday gift for a Fizzy Moon fan, or a green-fingered friend. We’ve used a wooden frame in soft pine to complement this design, but a pink or purple frame would look just as lovely. With its single lines of backstitch to recreate Fizzy’s fluffy fur, you’ll need extra patience but the results will be worth it. Happy…

dotty blooms

We’re thrilled to bring you this funky display of beautiful blooms, displayed in a pink polka dot watering can. The bold colours clash and complement each other for maximum visual impact. The striking level of realism is achieved by using different tones of the same colour to add depth and shading, and also in the stitching itself, with both fractionals and backstitch to give definition. You’ll really want to take your time creating these pretty petals and it’ll also help if you use a sharper needle to work your backstitch. Not only will it pierce the aida blocks more easily, it’ll help with the accuracy of your stitches too. You will need Threads: Stranded cotton, as listed in the key Needle: Size 24 tapestry needle Fabric: 14-count white aida measuring 36x36cm (14x14in) Extras: Backing fabric…
