At Stitched Stories, we understand the desire to make.
We understand it as a way to be creatively engaged and, at the same time, producing an appealing finished project.
That means we give you designs:
::> that are more fun than complex,
::> that give you a variety of stitches rather than just a few gorgeous ones,
::> that are a little bit like old-time samplers BUT with modern motifs.
Here are five designed-to-delight bits of Autumn stitching
FALL STITCH COMBO #1:
At the center of the mandala-styled Pumpkins & Owls:
- add a basket weave in two tones
- stitch a wreath of lazy-daisy leaves
- finish it off with purple French-knot berries
FALL STITCH COMBO #2:
On Harvest Table, a modern turkey tops iconic Thanksgiving motifs of pumpkin, pie, and cornucopia. Among the many fun stitch combinations are those at turkey center:
- a scalloped neck rendered with fly stitches
- six chain-stitched rings in earthy colors
- feathers filled with eye and ovals, scallops and French knots
FALL STITCH COMBO #3
Stitch a variety of haunting details on Spooky House:
- yellow and orange glowing windows rendered in satin stitch and outlined in purple
- pale back-stitched ghosts filling the sky (and popping out of the topmost window)
- a scattering of sharply outlined black bats
Spooky House is the richly-detailed centerpiece of a styled Halloween vignette.
FALL STITCH COMBO #4
The focal point of Fall Squirrel Sampler is a pair of bright squirrels filled with:
- rows of curvy chain stitching in warm fall tones
- bright flourishes of nested lazy daisies
- a half blossom of gold and orange layered stitches
Fall Squirrel Sampler is a classic piece of fall decor that looks great framed on a your entryway table.
FALL STITCH COMBO #5
Have fun stitching the caps on the large Amanita Muscaria Mushrooms as you embroider:
- a geometric fill that gets progressively more complex to evoke shading
- rings of scallops with loose fly stitching
- radiating gills with yellow back stitches
While Mushrooms isn’t explicitly fall-themed, the colors and woodland theme make it a good mixer during this season.
