The owner was very responsive and helpful. The download included excellent stitching instructions and other information - I plan to try more of these designs in the future!
Hello! I'm Chloe and I design embroidery hoop art patterns, usually featuring birds!
I love the possibilities of embroidery and the range of marks and textures that can be built up with stitch. My patterns tend to use back stitch or stem stitch to 'draw' outlines, before using seed stitches and straight stitches of varying lengths to fill in space and add areas of colour and pattern. I am very inspired by Kantha embroidery, building up areas of colour using small stitches. I like to think my patterns are approchable for those new to embroidery, but also sufficiently engaging for more experienced embroiderers.
I love to create patterns featuring birds; their colours and patterns lend themselves so well to being translated into stitch, I really enjoy working out ways to turn certain details into areas of pattern (such as feather shapes on their wings) and working out how to stylise and simplify certain areas.
Drawing is an important part of my process, and before starting a new pattern I make preparatory drawings which I then use to create the final pattern drawing. In the past each pattern drawing was meticulously created by hand. This could be a challenge at times, as I'd inevitably wobble in the middle of a line that was meant to be straight! I create my final pattern drawings now using vector software; still meticulous work but rather more forgiving!
My embroidery patterns include photographs and instructions to guide you through stitching your own bird embroidery, and also contain some notes on how to add your own little details to a piece, such as by using different threads or some beads. I offer support for my patterns via Etsy messages or you are always welcome to get in touch via my website. If you have stitched one of my patterns, I'd love to see a photograph! You can tag images on Instagram with #chloeredfernembroidery or send them to me via an Etsy message should you wish.
I have extensive experience in creating patterns and articles for magazines and love to work on projects like this; if you would like me to contribute a project or article to your publication, be it a magazine or book, please do feel free to contact me.
I also work with felt, creating embroidered and embellished decorations. I list a small selection of these in my shop occasionally but mainly make these to order, so if you have something in mind please do feel free to get in touch :)
I am based in the West Midlands, UK.
Thank you for visiting!

Additional policies and FAQs
How do your PDF patterns work?
When you purchase a PDF pattern from my Etsy shop, you will be able to download two files: one containing the pattern itself, along with information about how to stitch it, and one containing a stitch guide, which will tell you how to do some basic embroidery stitches. The PDFs will require a programme such as Adobe Reader to open in. It is best to view the pattern at 100% so you are seeing the images in the size they were intended.
Patterns can be printed to allow them to be easily transferred onto fabric using the method described or a method of your choice, and also to allow you to refer to the instructions off screen. Each page is A4 size, so to ensure your pattern prints at the right size, chose A4 paper and select 'fit to size' or select A4 sized paper and print at 100%. The PDFs can also be viewed on phones and tablets which have appropriate PDF viewing software, this can be useful if you like to carry your stitching with you away from the computer.
What if I need more help stitching a pattern I have purchased from you?
You are always welcome to get in touch if you need any extra advice and assistance for stitching a pattern. There is no time frame for this, even if you purchased the pattern a year ago and are only just getting around to stitching it, you are still welcome to get in touch.
Do you take custom orders?
I do take on some custom orders for bird embroideries and also occasionally other hoop art; if you have something in mind, feel free to drop me a message :) I love to stitch up my bird designs, so if you'd like a bullfinch, puffin or indeed any other bird for your wall but don't feel confident stitching it yourself, I can make one for you :)
I also love to take felt decoration commissions, do feel free to get in touch if you have something in mind! I can work on decorations like those I have made in the past, or create something totally new for you. I can also create custom decorations using colours inspired by the colours of your pet. Please see my Instagram account and website for more felt decoration photos.
How should I care for a piece of embroidered hoop art which I have purchased from you?
To clean embroideries it is best to use a very soft dry cloth rather than a damp one to gently remove any dust. Very soft clean makeup brushes work well too. Although I use quality threads and fabrics, it is a good idea to keep your new embroidery out of direct sunlight as all textiles can fade.
Please note that my work is not recommended for young children due to small parts such as beads etc.
I include a number of photos in my listings in an attempt to show the colour of my items accurately, however colours can vary between monitors so the embroidery may appear to be a slightly different colour in real life. If you happened to purchase an item and were unhappy with this in any way I would of course be happy to work with you to try to find a solution.
It would be lovely to know when your item has arrived safely and if you're happy with it; feedback is always much appreciated!

Fulfilling your Etsy order: In the case of physical goods (ie, not digital downloads) I also need to pass your name and address data to trusted third party companies, such as shipping companies, eg Royal Mail or a courier, to allow them to process and deliver your parcel.

I do not store your information anywhere outside of where it is displayed to me through the Etsy website, nor will I ever sell it, share it with a third party other than in those situations referred to above or use it to contact you for any reason other than relating directly to your order.
Under GDPR you are entitled to contact me to obtain a copy of any data concerning you (data that I will have received when you placed an order via Etsy from my shop) and to have any inaccuracies in the data rectified. That said, I do not hold any data outside of Etsy (ie, your data is stored on Etsy) but should you wish to have information which you have submitted to Etsy rectified or deleted you are welcome to contact me and I will advise you how to contact Etsy to make that happen.
