PDF Patterns

Create your own beautiful piece of embroidery from the comfort of your own home.  PDF patterns are a quick and easy way of gaining access to a new embroidery project without waiting for it to be shipped. Download to your PC, tablet or phone in minutes and you are ready to stitch!

The digital store has closed and all digital patterns can now be found in the Embroidery Shop.  There are over 85 PDF patterns available and you can now purchase the  fabric, iron on transfer and needles for each pattern in the same store.

Iron on Transfers

Tracing your own outlines is a thing of the past –  simple to use, crisp, clear, iron on transfers for each PDF pattern and all the projects in my last 4 books can now be purchased in the online shop.    The transfers work well with the recommended cotton muslin and linen fabric  for sale in the shop or can be used successfully with your own fabric as long as it is not silk.  Iron on transfers do not work with silk of any description, but the freezer paper method does work successfully.

The iron on transfer for the Kingfisher & flower an be found here.

On the subject of iron on transfers I am excited to let you know (and can reveal) that the new book will include iron on transfers for each project in the book.

Till next time, wherever you are in the world, keep smiling and happy stitching.

  1. I bought the pattern for the Barbara Streisand eyes Giraffe. I have completed it and it came out absulutley fabulous. Your directions were so easy to follow. It looks as good as if you had done it. Thank you for helping me look so good.

  2. Is it possible to transfer onto 100% Portuguese cotton? I would like to embroider pillowcases for gifts.

    Thank you, Isabel
