About

Hi! My name is Anna. Thank you for visiting my shop. Let me tell you a few words about myself.
I am from Russia. Throughout life for as long as I can remember, I have been doing handicrafts. I can embroider, sew, and knit. I have mastered macrame, basket weaving, lace making, and watercolor drawing… And all this due to my mother and grandmother. They have always supported my creative beginnings. In my childhood on summer vacations I used to go to my granny’s small village, surrounded by woods and lakes. Minimum civilization and maximum fresh air, gifts of nature and free from study time. One day my grandmother and I wove a woolen carpet with a pattern of red poppies. It was my most impressive project. What an amazingly diligent child I was! Despite such work was monotonous and meticulous I was absorbed by creative process. It was an invaluable experience!
As time passed by, I studied in the university. I graduated from university with a master degree in electrical engineering. I constructed complex circuits with the help of graphics programs. I worked in this sector for 5 years. But it was not my thing. Even though, that experience was very useful.
After giving birth to my first baby I took interest in making textile dolls. It was something new for me. It was an exciting mix of techniques, methods, creative pursuits and decisions. It was also a first experience in selling my products.
After a few years I decided to do something different. I thought of embroidery. Why not try to make my own designs? That’s how this shop appeared.
I am inspired by modern applied arts, other people’s works, pictures… Ideas come when I do the routine: wash the dishes, clean the house, go shopping, communicate with kids, do sports and so on. Therefore, I am in a constant creative process.
I have several sketchbooks. But more often I draft on first available piece of paper. Inspiration is Ms. Unpredictable! Then I edit image on computer and put it on a linen cloth. I think over the types of stitches, choose the mouline thread color and embroider. Numerous corrections are possible at this point. After that I make changes in the pattern drawing and create a PDF file with instructions.
I try to make embroidery designs attractive, impressive and at the same time easy to perform. Such kind of embroidery is more complicated for me than cross-stitch. You can freely change color palette, number of threads, add or remove separate elements of embroidery. However, for some people it might appear to be a drawback. Difficulties can occur while putting an image on cloth. In this case I would advice not to get stuck on the precision of transferring the elements. You have to focus on the neatness of stitches while embroidering. Then your work will be exceptional and unique.
Thanks ETSY for the opportunity to do my favorite job and start my small business. Thanks inspiration!

Refunds and Exchanges

Refunds will not be offered on digital products unless you have not downloaded the item prior to your refund request. Please read fully the description of the item you are purchasing before buying and also ask any questions before buying to ensure a straightforward transaction.

How do I transfer the pattern on the fabric?

In attached instructions you get a few ways to do this.
My favorite way is to use the Tracing Carbon paper. There is a paper of different colors and producers (eg DMC). It is convenient for any tone fabrics.
I can also recommend a more convenient and accurate way - "Sulky Printable Fabri-Solvy ". It is a stabilizer with a self-adhesive substrate on which you can print a pattern. Can be found on ETSY.
Love it! (This is not advertising :))
