Moroccan Delights

Oh my gosh…  I could hardly bear the excitement when the team at Cross Stitcher Magazine sent me this picture, hot from the photo shoot of the JULY project I have designed for the cover.  As you know, I write a regular column for the mag.. and for the Summer cover we were working with some new overdyed evenweaves which we will soon have in stock at Granny Knits (the crafty crew can’t wait!).
The design brief was to create something new and crafty to stitch for the outdoors with a folklore feel.  Inspired by my morrocan slippers and of course my normal madcap palette..  I came up with these beauties..  the pattern was a shocker to create – as grids are square, and I wanted to make this round!  But the effort was worth the result and I think the team have outshone themselves on the finish with this one.
Well done Harriet and co, yet another corker and I look forward to finished mag.. 

Bespoke Commission

I have been meaning to share with you this fab pic sent to me by Amy in the USA, who ordered a bespoke cushion from us…

She ordered the Camper Rainbow made up as a bobble cushion with a colourful stripey back.
Whilst this position is not it’s permanent home – I LOVE the number plate art piece next to the cushion! 

We do offer a bespoke design and make up service from £200 on Needlepoint and by cost if all you want is a pattern.  We offer this service on our Embroidery and Needlepoint Patterns, and can even create your own special design.

Please email us for more details – and Amy – THANK YOU for the pic.

We would LOVE to see more of your crafts – particularly if you have used something Granny Knits.  Either email us the pics – or post them onto our FACEBOOK PAGE.

An upcycled cushion cover

 We found this printed cushion cover sample in our stash!  This is one of our textile designs which we havent yet put into production…   so felt it would be perfect to embellish, and upcycle!

We are in the midst of launching more embroidery patterns online over the next couple of weeks – but for this project I went freestyle, following and enhancing the flower pattern, and adding in words (supplied by my daughter who said it was how it made her feel) and a swirly bird.

We used one of our new water soluble pens for this – which although it looked like bright turquoise felt tip pen – disappeared when we litterally touched it with water!

Genius!..  hope you like the design
