Rue des Petits Champs, Paris mini pattern
This mini pattern is perfect for you with limited time to stitch! The design is inspired from Rue des Petits Champs, which runs through the 1st and 2nd district in Paris. It’s a fun modern embroidery design with focus on the backstitch technique for neat lines. The pattern fits in a 10cm (4″) diamater embroidery hoop.
Have you been on the look for small embroidery patterns? No need to look further! This mini pattern for hand embroidery was inspired by one of the majestic buildings on Rue des Petits Champs, Paris.
The pattern fits into a small 10cm (4″) diameter embroidery hoop. Thanks to its smaller size, it’s perfect for you with limited time to stitch. Often times the smaller designs are less inspiring, but we want to change that. That’s why we’ve created an authentic mini version of our otherwise larger architectural patterns.
To capture the graphical look of the design we recommend to embroider with the backstitch technique. Furthermore, considering it’s small size, you should embroider it with only a single stranded thread. Charles has stitched the design with black for a contemporary feel. However, you can easily use whichever colour that you find most beautiful. For example, it could be wonderful with a beige or dark grey tone to emphasise the historical aspect of the design.
Some history about Rue des Petits Champs
The street first opened in 1634 and runs between the 1st and 2nd arrondissement. Hence, you will truly stitch history when you dig into this Paris pattern! Furthermore, due to its long history, the street has also a number of historically marked buildings. For example number 39, which was significant during the French revolution.
