The HUSSIF - detailed step by step tutorial and hand embroidery patterns - two versions



  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 1 PDF

This is a 59-page pattern with a very detailed tutorial to make my HUSSIF design.

Every step of the making process is photographed with written instructions. Included are a set of hand embroidery designs which I added to my Hussif, but if you don't like embroidery, this pattern also shows how to change those sections to feature pretty fabrics instead (see the last photo).
I also show two options for binding - one is a mix of traditional cotton and lace, the other is all lace.

This Hussif can become a special heirloom piece, but you may decide to make a few and gift them - believe me, they will be gratefully received.

NOTE: This is a digital pattern which you will be able to download after payment has been finalised. It is not a physical item to be posted.

I hope you enjoy making a Hussif of your very own!

Okay, I own several "huswif" patterns but this one is very pretty and features a few different parts. I love it!

Decent, detailed. I’m not wowed (I’ve gotten many different patterns to compare recently) but it’s definitely among the better of the patterns I’ve gotten recently. I don’t at all regret the purchase, it just mostly wasn’t what I am trying to find. Unfortunately, with PDF patterns, there’s no real way to tell if something is going to work or not. I can see that some would really like this pattern, though! The photos of each step are amazing and detailed! But literally, out of 59 pages, only two are printable pattern pages and those are mostly blank space around the small scissors pocket shape and 3 small stitch motifs. If you are a confident beginner quilter and want guidance on designing your own pattern, this is ideal. If you hoping for a pattern to lay on fabric & cut, this one won’t help.

It was easy to follow, and it turned out great! The seller got back to me quickly when I asked questions. Highly recommend.

Exactly as described. The instructions are detailed (thank you) and this is wonderful! I am making one for myself and one for each of my granddaughters I think they will love it to keep in there sewing baskets or when they come to see me and we work on our projects! Love this!
