So I’ve been toying with the idea of doing embroidery patterns of my doodles recently. It’s an interesting thing for me to think about because I become really attached to the things that I do and yet I would love the idea of someone stitching my design! So I’m going to start testing the waters slowly by offering some free embroidery patterns here and then seeing how I feel about the whole process. Anyhoo….here is my first pattern. Just a cute lil’ jellyfish that I drew and then stitched up to show some color options, but go crazy with it! Hope you enjoy!
Today at work a woman came in with a beautiful lilac shirt and butter yellow pea coat and I thought it was a great, refreshing color combo. This particular winter feels as though it is taking FOREVER to be over, and I know spring is just around the corner so I am mentally preparing early! Sometimes turning to the simplest things like flowers or the yummy stuff you put on your toast produces great color combination ideas. Thinking about it this way forces me to stop and really look at the things around me and observe. The world around us is a crafty place I’ll tell ya! Ahhh just looking at these colors gets me so excited for spring! What are some of your favorite color combos?
