floral hoop kit

Let love bloom “This design was inspired by my love for florals. You can ask anyone who knows me – I have florals on everything! Whether it be books about botanics, prints on shirts and fabrics, anything vintage that my grandmothers passed down to me, or some of the latest trends, I’m obsessed. It was only natural that this design came from that obsession. The colours used in this pattern were inspired by my sweet little girl, and her love for rainbows and all things bright and beautiful. Using just a few basic embroidery techniques, you’ll find this so easy to stitch, and will end up with a gorgeous hoop to brighten any space!” Amanda Bryde is a wife, mama and maker. She’s based on the Sunshine Coast, Australia and sells embroidery kits,…
