We’ve had a few readers mention to us how much they love Steve – the “marvelous” embroidered insect featured in our first issue as a tutorial. We love Steve too, the charmer!
In fact, we have a bit of a thing for weird, embroidered insects in general. Lydia’s our resident embroiderer, and has a lovely collection of entomological ephemera (try saying that five times fast!).
Here’s a look at Steve’s older brother; he’s a bit flashier than our Steve.
We’ve been feeling inspired by some of the lovely illustrations in the vintage book pictured above, An Insect Book for the Pocket. How sweet is that title?
So Lydia’s been cooking up a friend for Steve. We’ll have the tutorial here soon.
We hope you like Steve’s friend. There will be more free patterns and tutorials appearing here soon, so watch this space!
