The Parisian window is the perfect beginner hand embroidery design for you who wish to learn how to embroider.

The design is conveniently sized to fit a 15cm (6″) diameter embroidery hoop, which makes it very manageable as one of your first patterns.
The Parisian window is the perfect beginner hand embroidery pattern. It will introduce you to some of the most useful stitch techniques, such as backstitch, split stitch, French knot and satin stitch. If just the names made you feel overwhelmed, don’t go yet! We’ve designed a free embroidery library with you in mind. Thus, we highly encourage you to check it out for video tutorials of all the techniques outlined above.
With closeup videos of the techniques by your side, you’ll feel more ready to take on your first pattern. This design of Parisian Window was one of our first patterns. It has been stitches by almost all our students at our Paris workshops and we haven’t had a single one who wasn’t successful with it. Thus, we can confidently say that you will be too!
We chose to name it Parisian window as we lived in Paris at the time of its creation. Furthermore, the rather detailed balcony felt like a good representation of the French balcony style. Additionally, it’s also the perfect style to begin to master rounded corners. To best capture small rounded shapes, we recommend to do short backstitches. You’re able to see exactly how in a video in the embroidery library.
