Pattern Testing

Last week I was looking about on Instagram and came across a friend who was testing an embroidery pattern she had designed. I jokingly said if she needs any pattern testers I am available and it turned out she did!

Niki from The Vintage Artist is a lovely lady and awesome artist, our first contact was in ’08 when her lovely doggie Ellie pulled my name out of a hat to win one of her prints. I have followed her work since and watched her really grow and blossom into the artist she is today.

I love this little pattern and I am pleased she asked me to give it a go, her work is whimsical and is very much inspired by the british country side, which I love as I live in a nice little town surrounded by hills and greenland.

So this is my attempt at her pattern, It has been a little while since I did any embriodery but I dont feel I did too bad a job. She has this pattern for sale here, it really didnt take me long to whip up, considering how out of practice I am. (If you follow me on instagram you will have seen my progress pics.)

What do you think? I think she is a talented lady! 🙂

  1. You did a beautiful job with Niki’s delightful pattern, Hannah. Adding embroidery to her shop is such a great idea – thinking outside the box.


  2. ADORABLE! I used to do needlework but arthritis has taken over but I love to look at other’s work. Yours is beautiful. I love the simplicity of the design!
