Downloadable PDF - Holdfast

7.20 8.00

Down by the harbour, I can watch the seaweed wave in the currents like mermaid hair. It is firmly attached to the rocks below by a “holdfast”. In much the same way, our hearts are anchored by our love for one another. That connection is the inspiration for this design.

LEVEL: Beginner/First Time Friendly

Choose to incorporate lots of links (detached chain) or simply use a single stitch for a very first-time friendly design.

  • two digital versions of pattern to fit 15cm and 17cm hoops

Recommended supplies:

  • light coloured cotton fabric

  • 17cm (6 ¾”) OR 15cm (6”) bamboo embroidery hoop

  • DMC brand floss (820 blue, 666 red)

  • embroidery needle

Process

It is my intention that the printed patterns retain their original, hand-drawn aesthetic. All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original and designed by me by hand, beginning with a simple number 2 pencil and a sketchbook. The completed images are scanned and minimally edited digitally to create the patterns. 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.

Need another reason to feel good about buying from Hook, Line & Tinker? I donate 5% of profits to help women and children experiencing homelessness.
