Peony Patterns Mariposa Hand Embroidery {Release}

Summertime by the pool is the perfect opportunity to lose yourself in an embroidery project. As long as you're not chatty like me, and find yourself talking to all the other parents instead of working on the embroidery you'd planned to do for 3 hours while your kids swam. Ahem.

A few months ago, I was checking out the $3 p/yard remnant room of one of our local fabric stores (G Street Fabrics), when I found some polkadot ITY knit and a matching polkadot chiffon! With no project in mind, but in awe that I'd stumbled upon two identical prints on two different bases in… Continue reading Peony Patterns Calendula in Jersey & Chiffon
