There’s intricate and then there’s our Blue Flower Maze blackwork pattern which is a lovely challenge for an experienced stitcher, or even a less experienced one with plenty of time and patience.
Our Blue Flower Maze blackwork pattern is in three colors, two shades of pink and one of blue. This is not a particularly difficult design to stitch – as long as you take it slowly and don’t get lost in the pattern.
This design has been created on 16 count white Aida and measures 70 x 70 stitches so when it’s finished it will fit nicely into an aperture card so that you can use it as a birthday or other greetings card.
If you want to make the Blue Flower Maze blackwork pattern look really special you could use holographic thread. We like the ones made by Gutermann and also by Superior Threads.
Both are made in Japan and give a wonderful glittery finish to any design when you see it in artificial light.
The best way we’ve found to use holographic thread is to cut a length of it, something like 15cm, and then thread it through the eye of a needle and knot the two ends together so that you’ll be sewing with a double thread.
Then run the thread across a product like Thread Heaven which comes in a small blue box from your local needlework shop.
Do send us a picture of the completed Blue Flower Maze blackwork pattern
Run your fingers down the thread so that the static helps to keep the two threads separate. You’re then ready to begin.
One tip – don’t use too long a piece of holographic thread because it is more prone to tangle than ordinary DMC or Anchor thread. Stitch carefully and slowly for the best effect.
We hope you’ll enjoy stitching our Blue Flower Maze blackwork pattern and if you’d like to send us a picture when you’ve finished, we’d love to see it.
