Hello, I'm Lou!

I create nature-inspired embroidery art featuring wildflowers, landscapes and insects. Each piece is completely unique, hand-stitched and designed by me in Yorkshire, UK.

My PDF patterns are perfect for beginners - simply print the template and follow the instructions provided. Each pattern download contains 2 PDF booklets with full instructions on how to transfer your template to fabric, how to carry out each type of stitch and a recommended list of materials, resources and where to get them. Happy Stitching!

Watch your ideas come to life: I LOVE custom orders so please do not hesitate to contact me for a chat about an original piece (and a virtual cup of tea).

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

I am happy to create custom or personalised pieces. Simply pop me a message or 'Request a custom order' and I'll get right back to you to discuss your requirements. Prices vary depending on size and detail.

Sizing details

Each PDF pattern is designed to fit a 6 inch hoop. Don't have the right hoop size? No problem! You can save the template and resize it to suit your needs before you print it.

Looking for a custom piece? Hoop size varies from 3-12 inches in diameter. I can also stitch on to clothing and other items if the fabric is suitable.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each original piece is packaged securely in a padded envelope or box to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition. Each hoop is beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and string. Pop me a message with your order or mark your order as a gift during checkout if you would like to add a personalised message or name tag.

Care instructions

You can hang your hoop on the wall from a screw or hook. Alternatively, display on your shelf or attach ribbon to the metal fastening to hang wherever you like!

I've seen a design on your Instagram but it isn't available in your Etsy shop. Can I still purchase it?

Yes! I'm happy to recreate past designs for you where possible. Send me a message and I will be happy to discuss it with you.
