Bring your embroidery in process on the tube or bus and make a few stitches while you travel the city. Or why not stitch it as a reminder of your last trip? Architectural hand embroideries are the best personal souvenirs from your travels and dream destinations. If you haven’t yet been to London, let the time you stitch this design be a time of inspiration to one day make it happen.
Furthermore, as you stitch you will find yourself increasingly connected to the location. With each stitch you can let your thoughts wander off to all the dreamy things you did (or will do) in London.
What is included with this London embroidery pattern?
Upon purchase you will receive downloadable pdfs with stitch and colour guides for the design. However, no physical material will be shipped. Hence, you will need to be able to download and read pdf files on your computer. We recommend to only print out the page with the transferable design. This doesn’t only save ink for your printer but also paper for the environment.
The contours are stitched in single-strand back stitch to capture a more modern look. The phone booth on the other hand, as well as the stop sign, are done with satin and split stitches. You can easily choose whether you prefer the stop sign to be filled out or not. We chose to stitch it along with the booths as it balances the composition more nicely. Furthermore, it enhances the strong red colour and makes the two elements pop out in an impressive way.
