Downloadable PDF - Origami Paper Boat "Hope Floats My Boat"
I have great admiration for the beautiful simplicity of Japanese design, and Hope Floats My Boat is my own playful interpretation and nod to the aesthetic. The pattern was created from my own original, hand-sketched illustration. A red origami boat on a sashiko inspired sea, this modern design is all about texture and contrast. Created using only two very basic stitches, this pattern is great for beginners. The pattern and its instructions are available for immediate download.
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.

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.
