You are ready to reap the benefits of taking some time out for yourself, bringing yourself the joy of creating an object with your hands. You can get started today with this downloadable pdf pattern
If you love nature, you’ll find this Geometer moth soft sculpture pattern irresistible!
Is this pattern for me, you're wondering?
This is a downloadable pdf pattern which requires a sewing machine, enough sewing experience to be comfortable with straight and zigzag stitching on curves (confident beginner), and enough curiosity to want to learn how to make a wire armature for the body, and how to hand embroider (the whipped back stitch).
What does the pdf pattern include?
Supplies & tools list. Full sized pattern pieces for making a 6x2.5 inch/15x6 cm fabric moth. Clear step-by-step instructions with large color photos. Links to two videos demonstrating the body construction and the embroidery. You will receive 2 pdf files of approx about 12 MB.
Do I have to print out all the pages?
Absolutely not! If you love trees (as I do) and do not want to print multiple pages, this is for you! You just need to print out the two pattern piece pages and then you can follow the instructions on your desktop computer, laptop or tablet as you sew.
Will I have to purchase fabric and specific tools?
Very little fabric is required so you may have some medium-weight fabric scraps you can use. You’ll need some iron-on interfacing for stiffening, a Frixion pen for marking, and 26-28 gauge wire (or a pipe cleaner) for the body plus wire cutters from your toolkit. You’ll also need embroidery needles and floss plus other basic sewing tools you probably have. Optional: a brooch clasp and/or jump rings if you’d like to make your moth into a brooch or hang it on the wall.
How will I be able to use my moth once it's finished?
There are so many possibilities! Instructions are given for attaching a brooch clasp or a ring for hanging. The moths you make could also be displayed in shadow boxes, hung as mobiles, or framed.
Set aside some moth-making time...
...personalize your moth with your choice of fabrics & floss, experiment with different color harmonies…your end result will be your own original work of art!
As soon as your payment clears, your files will be available for download: no waiting, no wondering, no bother.
