From the mushrooms to the french knots to the itsy bitsy spider I just loved doing this pocket embroidery. It will become a staple as I sew up more dresses and pinafores for the grandchildren. Thank you Sophie for another timeless pattern.

My first attempt at embroidery and it was so much fun! Sophie’s signature clear instructions make it so easy for a complete beginner to learn the different types of stitches and knots, and the pattern is so whimsical and I love that the individual elements of the design can be used independently too.

Another beautiful BTK embroidery pattern! Sophie’s seasonal embroidery patterns are easily becoming my new favourite additions to my BTK sewing repertoire and I can’t wait to think of new ways to add these gorgeous designs to future makes. Instructions are clear and the different size pocket designs offer flexibility for little or big options, without having to worry about resizing. So thoughtful, thank you Sophie!
Autumn is my favourite season, and these incredible colours and embroidery designs bring out all the beauty of the season! Mushrooms and leaves, and the super cute spider addition, in very easy to follow stitching tutorials make for a super embroidery pattern that anyone can try!
