Learn a New Craft - Kate's Embroidery Ideas

If you’re like me and love a creative project that keeps your hands (and mind) busy, then why not give some embroidery a go! I discovered an amazing lady on Instagram last year who creates wonderful, easy to follow patterns that are great even if you’ve never done it before. You can have a look at all her work on Instagram @maggiejosstudio and the link to her website is below,


I recently completed her sunflower pattern and absolutely loved it! The PDF was full of easy to follow steps for every stitch and she offers a colour guide of the DMC threads that she used to complete it (this isn’t much use at the moment as we have to make do with what we have but anything works!) So, if you’ve got some spare fabric, threads and a needle lying about then why not give one of these a shot.

 I decided to leave my finished work inside the hoop to hang on my wall, I just stitched really loosely around the back and pulled it tight. I also tied some ribbon to the top which is a pretty way of attaching it to your wall.

I promise you won’t want to put it down once you’ve started.

Happy stitching!
