This Paris embroidery pattern is a pure joy for all architecture and needlework enthusiasts. It’s inspired by the majestic architecture in the old part of Paris. You can find the building of the design when you walk down Rue Réaumur, which runs between the 2nd and 3rd arrondissement.
When we lived in Paris, we used to walk in the older parts of the city on a daily basis. Thus, many of our early hand embroidery designs are inspired by the iconic city. But who’d blame us? The architecture makes for gorgeous modern embroidery patterns! They all start out as hand drawings, which are later transferred to original and authentic embroidery patterns. Hence, you can be sure to have a unique embroidered artwork upon completion.
The pattern fits perfectly in a 15cm (6″) embroidery hoop. You are able to keep the hoop for framing, or to stretch the embroidery onto a canvas frame. It all depends on your preference and what you think would fit the best for you. It’s incredible to see the growing movement of modern hand embroidery. Unique motives like this one, sure contributes to the inspiration for stitching.
The green trees make up a strong colour contrast to the black contours, which completes the composition. On most of the larger streets in Paris, you find these big trees along the sides. They contribute to the atmosphere and frames the avenues in beautiful ways. Perhaps the most known avenue is the Champs Elysée, where you can also see these trees along the street.
