Here in the Pacific Northwest, we struggle to grow a decent zinnia, but we have beautiful fuchsias in so many amazing color combinations, which are particularly suited to our mild climate. My husband says to be safe, I should wait until Mother’s Day, but today is a gorgeous day, and I couldn’t wait any longer to hang my new fuchsia on the porch.
These matching Art Nouveau designs are from 1910 newspapers, and meant to be used on a blouse and a skirt panel (hence the odd shapes). These are the only fuchsia embroidery patterns I’ve ever seen, and although they are quite large, I think you could just use small elements of the designs. As usual, click on the images to enlarge.
