If you like intricate and difficult looking designs which are actually very easy to make, then you’ll love our Flower Plum blackwork pattern.
Stitched on 16 count white Aida, the Flower Plum blackwork pattern is a design which could also be made on even weave linen where a stitch is across two lines of material. If you want to try something different then see if your local remnants shop has any off cuts of even weave linen and give it a try. It’s an inexpensive way of trying something different!
There are just three colors in the Flower Plum blackwork pattern. Two shades of green, one in a slightly darker shade than the other, and pink.
Our blackwork designs are proving very popular and not least because they look fantastic when they’re stitched. This design won’t take you long to make either, the geometric patterns are all made in small straight stitches so the picture looks a lot more complicated than it actually is.
When the Flower Plum blackwork pattern is finished you could take it to be professionally framed, particularly if you are giving it to a friend or loved one as a gift, or you could try framing it yourself. Many homeware stores sell picture frames and it isn’t all that difficult to stretch the fabric using board and pins from a craft shop.
Our Flower Plum blackwork pattern is a work of art
On the other hand, you could do as we’ve done and leave it in a wooden embroidery hoop which we think emphasises the fact this is a work of art created by you, rather than something that you’ve bought in a shop.
Our Flower Plum blackwork pattern is one of our collection of blackwork designs. So if you enjoy making this one, or you want something different for a special occasion, do take a look there.
