It's a Beautiful Day...

Mr Rogers Embroidery Pattern Hand Embroidery by SeptemberHouse

Well hello there! It's so nice to see you on this lovely day. As you can tell, I am taking my cues from a hero of mine - Fred Rogers. He just makes you want to be nicer and more thoughtful, doesn't he?

If you are a newsletter subscriber then you have already had a chance to see and download this pattern. I don't always stitch up the patterns I give away in my newsletter but this one was one I could not resist. I had so much fun working on this and thinking about how much we need Fred Rogers in our world today.

Even though he is gone, we can still watch him in action as he guided both children and adults through life's challenges. Thank you Fred Rogers!

If you would like to stitch this up too here are some guides for the stitches I used. Just click to enlarge them. 

I placed my finished embroidery in a painted 6 inch hoop. Even as I embroidered this I thought of other ways this pattern could be approached so please keep in mind that this is just one of many ways this could be done. Just have fun!

Painless Patterns are Out of This World

Solar Flair Hand Embroidery Modern Space Patterns by SeptemberHouse

Okay, so I know these may not look like something new from SeptemberHouse but I swear these have just hit the shop shelves! Yes, these are the patterns from the Solar Flair Pattern Collection

But, these were all stitched up on pre-printed fabric panels.

Yep, if transferring patterns is a part of the embroidery process that you dread then these might be just the thing for you. Each design is centered on a 12 x 12 inch cotton panel. I wanted to make sure there were extra inches around the edges to accommodate any project they might be used for - pillows, wall hangings, quilt squares - or anything else you might dream up.

Each panel is sold separately and includes a full color stitch guide.

I was really unsure about whether or not to include floss in these kits. One one hand - many people who embroider already have a huge floss stash (it's okay to admit it, I swear) so they most likely already have many of these colors. Or, they may want to come up with their own color combinations instead of using the colors I used.

On the other hand, it's kind of nice to just have everything you need ready to go when you start a project and not have to worry about gathering up all the colors for these panels.

So, I decided to offer both. These panels can be purchased with or without floss, yay!

new for 2018

Just because I have been quiet doesn't mean I haven't been busy these days, I swear. I always feel extra motivated after the holidays are over and I tend to shift into creation mode adding new items to the shop as quickly as I can. I have just a few to share today but more are still in the works.

First up is the addition of the Wind & Water embroidery pattern collection to the Iron On Transfer category. There are now 8 different pattern collections available in both digital AND iron on format. Iron-Ons make transferring patterns to fabric so easy so I love offering this option to people who dread transferring (like me!).

I also added two new designs to the needle minder category so there are now 6 available options for these fun tools. I decided to go sweet and salty with these by creating a subtle and graceful butterfly and bold and edgy skull. I feel like I have both of those sides to my personality and maybe you do too. Now I can match my minder to my mood!

New Iron On Embroidery Pattern Collections now available

Today I'm so excited to share a quick shop announcement. Two more SeptemberHouse embroidery pattern collections are now available in iron-on transfer format. Happy Houseplants and Il Circo are now on the shop shelves!

Happy Houseplants features mix and match patterns so you can create fun combinations of flower pots and greenery. There are over 200 different possible combinations! 

In addition to the mix and match patterns there are three more patterns included as well. This collection is going to keep any stitcher busy!

Il Circo is a SeptemberHouse favorite. It's been off the shelf for a while as it received an upgrade but now it's back in Iron-on format.

This collection is inspired by vintage Italian Circus trains. Included in the set is a circus train engine and three additional train car designs. These can be stitched in a row or framed individually. 

There is a lot of room for customization with this collection - use whichever cars you like in your project and put them in any order you like. Two more circus themed patterns are included as well.

You can find these iron-on pattern collections at SeptemberHouse on Etsy or over at Handmade Amazon. If you need more than one set of patterns don't forget the 2 for $13 option. Thanks for taking a peek at these new offerings today!
