For those of you who haven't seen my ever expanding bump, I'm seven months pregnant! We're in the process of decorating our spare room for our new arrival and i have been looking for some fun projects to adorn the nursery walls.
I came across these lovely dapper chaps on Sublime Stitching website. For those of you who don't know about Sublime Stitching, it's an independent company run by artist/embroiderer Jenny Hart. They stock everything from embroidery tools to transfer patterns by a variety of illustrators. The two designs above are by illustrator Ryan Berkley and are part of a pack of four (also including a cat and a rabbit).
I have a lot of odds and ends of embroidery thread and these patterns were a great way to use it all up! I wanted to keep a linear quality to the embroidery so i made the decision to block fill the jackets and leave the rest as a series of coloured lines.
