Joanna Saunders, founder of Sew & Saunders, is the embroidery artist behind this tropical textured flower design. One look at her Instagram page and you are wonderfully overwhelmed by verdant displays of foliage—beautifully compelling viewers to appreciate the natural world.

When it comes to this free, vibrant, and appealing tropical flower pattern, the only question you'll have is where to showcase it. Will it be on a tea towel? A pocket? A tote? Or displayed prominently on your wall? With its strong lines and textural detailing, this intermediate-level project will have you falling in love with embroidery all over again.

Skill level: intermediate

Please note: The magic sheets referenced in the pattern instructions are coming soon. You can substitute magic sheets by using a light box technique with a DMC water soluble embroidery pen or by using tracing paper.

Joanna Saunders is a London based artist who first learned how to stitch when she 6 years old while on a trip to Greece with her mother. After her first project embellishing a bag, she's never stopped! She currently draws inspiration from fashion designers and photographers, particularly the work of Tim Walker for his use of textures.
