EXPLORE Embroidery Pattern (PDF)
Explore, uncover and discover your stitching talents with this amazing downloadable embroidery design. The pattern includes the photographed design plus an alphabet so you can create your own custom embroidery hoop art with this unique landscape lettering. You can choose to fill your text with one habitat or use all three like I did for the sample hoop. Stitch with the suggested colors (DMC floss numbers are provided) or recapture your favorite mountain, desert and ocean memories by introducing additional colors.
This design features satin stitch, long and short stitch, French knots, straight stitch and back stitch. Some of the details are tiny (especially when resized for a 5 inch hoop) but accessible for beginners with patience. This embroidery pattern will help you practice precision and color management, and you'll have a gorgeous piece of embroidery art when you are finished.
Your purchase includes the EXPLORE embroidery pattern and a copy of my beginner guide. The embroidery instructions include a color key with DMC floss numbers, a two page color and stitch key for all three habitats, step-by-step instructions for stitching the design, the EXPLORE UNCOVER DISCOVER design sized for a 9 inch (22.9 cm) hoop, ready to print. Please resize as needed. Plus, you'll find a full alphabet so you can create your own text with any of the three habitats.
The beginner guide includes a supplies list with suggested products based off of my experience, tips on how to get started, including pattern transfer suggestions for future projects, plus diagrams of stitches. The beginner guide can also be found online here with helpful videos, plus you can find some additional tutorials here.
