Hello everyone! I’ve got a new pattern I’ve recently added to my shop!
Once the new year rolled around I didn’t quite have my pattern poll up and running yet, but I had my awesome followers over on Patreon give their opinion, which is how I came up with this month’s pattern. A dragonfly was relatively high on the list, and I was more than happy to oblige because last year’s Moth & Butterfly were so fun to make!
But as I was brainstorming, I couldn’t help thinking: what if I went literal and made an actual dragonfly 🐉? So this pattern includes both! It has the classic insect with a long abdomen and elegant wings. But it also has an insect-inspired, fairy-like dragon with a long body, mischievous smile, and the same dragonfly wings. With some added armature wire in the body, you can make it balance on its own tail! So it looks like it’s permanently hovering in flight.
As usual, the pattern comes with applique templates for the different eyes and wing markings. So you can stitch those on by hand or regular sewing machine. But if you have an embroidery machine, you can buy the embroidery files separately. All the designs have 4×4 hoop options, they just might have some changes to make them fit.
To celebrate the launch, the new pattern will be 30% off from now through the 1st of February. Also the embroidery will be 50% off. All other insect or dragon patterns will be 20% off. Meanwhile the rest of my shop will be 10% off. I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you do, I hope you enjoy it!
