Add a unusual design to create an impact. Free designs and PDF tutorial.


       experimental poppy

The great thing about the group that I have been teaching for a number of years is that sometimes we start with an idea that I have prepared and then go off on an experimental tangent. “What if we try this?”. The result was that we ended up with some unusual designs that can look like flowers, or fireworks and could look stunning on a number of home décor items such as cushions.

Click on the link above ‘experimental poppy’ and it will take you to a zip file which contains the designs ready to stitch in three different sizes so suitable for all makes of Bernina embroidery machine.

If you would like to try creating your own designs within embroidery software I have written a PDF tutorial called ‘experimental Poppy /Flower’ which is in the zip file, with lots of screenshots and photos to guide you through the process.


Above is an example page.

I hope you enjoy experimenting as much as we did!
