Pinbroidery card size free test pattern

Flower corners pricking patternThank you to everyone who has provided useful feedback to my question “Do you like the size of the Pinbroidery patterns?” In order to take the survey to the next stage I have produced a reduced size version of the flower corners pattern. It is available free from the Pinbroidery web site blog.

I have reduced the pattern to 120 x 120 mm (4¾ x 4¾ inches). There are a number of manufacturers who produce single fold greetings card blanks that a stitched panel of this size could be mounted on.

You will have to download the original full size flower corners pattern to get the stitching instructions.

The reduction of about 20% means that the holes are a bit closer together but the spacing should still be adequate.

I do like the larger size as it gives me more scope to develop the pattern. What I have in mind for future Pinbroidery patterns is that I could supply the pricking pattern in two sizes: 144 mm square and a reduced size to be decided. Your feedback will help me come to a decision on this.

Please let me have your feedback on the smaller pattern as a comment to this article or on the Pinbroidery blog.
