The colours we choose to fill our lives with can have an enormous effect on our mood. Whether it’s wearing a new outfit or treating yourself to a bunch of flowers, adding some brighter shades to your surroundings can give you a real boost. And what better way to play with colour than with a needle and thread? At this time of year, I just love to pull out all my favourite threads and get a bit experimental with my stitching. Anything can become your canvas: a scrap of pretty fabric, some old denim jeans, a long forgotten pair of espadrilles… the possibilities are endless! This month, I’d like to encourage you to feel brave and go bold with your embroidery. Try a new technique, switch up the colour palette…

Once upon a time These enchanting illustrations have jumped straight out of designer Jessie Chorley’s notebook for you to stitch. Each one is screen printed onto soft linen that’s safe to pop in the washing machine – making them a great choice for embellishing items that will see a lot of wear. You can patch them onto clothing or sew them into blankets. The template pack comes as a set of eight, with two of each design included.

let’s go for a ride

FRAMING IN A HOOP Press your finished embroidery on the wrong side to avoid flattening the stitches. Trim the fabric into a circle that’s slightly larger than the outer hoop. If you want to back your hoop neatly, place the inner hoop onto a piece of felt and cut around it. Mount the fabric back into the hoop in the same way as when you were stitching, but making sure the design is central within the inner hoop and the screw is positioned at the centre of the top. Work running stitch around the edge of the fabric and pull tightly to gather the fabric behind the hoop. Pin the felt over the back of the gathered fabric and stitch into place by hand using either small whipping stitch or blanket…

Mindful making We’ve dipped and dabbled in the punch needle technique before, and although we were pretty much head over heels for it already, Sara Moore’s fern design has tipped us over into full obsession. Those earthy tones, paired with the simplicity of the fern silhouette, are just so soothing to look at – not to mention to stitch. The relaxing repetitive motion of needle punching is almost meditative.
