Paris Spring embroidery pattern

Bonjour! This is my new pattern: Paris Spring. I’ve been in love with the idea of this particular pattern ever since I made a teeny tiny sketch of it (less than an inch wide!) over two months ago. I’m really happy with it. Even the colour purple! Which isn’t one that I normally gravitate towards when selecting colours. :-)

The pattern is inspired by those old Parisian Art Nouveau metro signs, I love those! And of course there’s le Tour Eiffel. It’s obviously not a realistic tower.. but would just be boring, non?

I’ve included two versions in the pattern, the one I’ve stitched and one which doesn’t have a single heart. You know, if you feel like something less romantic. :-) And I also made stripped down versions of the towers without any leaves and flowers etc. And there’s also a few extra motifs as well as a flurry of hearts.

I’m already thinking of other city icons to transmogrif into patterns.. stay tuned. :-)
