This pattern is a "hoot" for book lovers. But go on, STITCH past your bedtime too! All of the stitches are basic, introductory embroidery stitches (you can do it!). Made mostly using single stitches and the backstitch (easy peasy!). Texture and fullness is created by incorporating a detached chain (link) and a satin stitch. BTW The satin stitch is edged with a backstitch because it looks great AND hides any imperfections so you always look like a pro. It's like magic!Level 2: Ambitious Beginner FriendlyChoose to incorporate lots of links (detached chain) or simply use a single stitch for a very first-time friendly design.

ProcessAll of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original and designed by Laurie Dolhan in Ketch Harbour, Nova Scotia. Each illustration is repeatedly rendered through the craft of hand embroidery using a variety of basic stitches to build texture and a pleasing design. The pattern evolves with each hand rendering with attention to texture and technique. Through this process, instructions for completing each design are developed. The 100% cotton fabric is cut and prepared by hand, and all finalized patterns are printed onto the fabric in the studio using inks that maintain their integrity during the stitching process. Each kit is packed by hand. Packaging is designed to be lightweight and compact to reduce environmental impacts via shipping, and paper, including recycled paper, have been used rather than single use plastics.

Beyla is a tribute to bees and all that they stand for: communication, dreaming big, healing energy, sexuality, fertility, sweetness, hard work, balance and feminine power.
Ixchel is inspired by the power of the moon and its cycle. This design is my tribute to the power of women and Nature, the phases of the moon and the phases of a woman’s life.
