Spring may not have sprung just yet, but we’re looking ahead to sunnier days! A new season is an opportunity to find inspiration and try the designs you’ve always wanted to. Today we’re sharing three easy ways to work the magic of springtime into your embroidery from colour inspiration to quotes and graphics. Let’s jump in!
Colour, colour, and more colour
Spring is all about new life. Lush greens and pretty pinks are a welcome sight as the days get warmer.
Work bright colours and pastels into your embroidery to symbolize new beginnings and turn up the excitement. Here are some of our favourite hues we’ll be using on Embroider Buddy® stuffed animals and other embroidables like blankeys, backpacks and pillows:
- Robin’s egg blue
- Lilac purple
- Daffodil yellow
- Perfect peach
- Spring green
- Blooming blush
- Ultra violet (Pantone’s 2018 Colour of the Year)
Ideas for fresh spring graphics
Drawing on your new palette of spring colours, practice some decorative design elements to really celebrate spring!
Bright blooms are always a fabulous idea to welcome the new season. From tulips to daffodils and daisies to lilacs, the possibilities are endless! Budding trees and bird’s nests are other spring symbols that will pair perfectly with a Buddy or two.
Want to go beyond plant life for your designs? Bunnies, birds, ducklings, bees and lambs are all examples of springtime animals that we think would look great in embroidery – especially on items like the Embroider Buddy® pillow.
Springtime quotes or messages
It’s time for the final touch on your Embroider Buddy® design – a springtime greeting or message of positivity.
Here are some of our favourites:
- No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow – Proverb
- Spring: A lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be
- Live life in full bloom!
- Hello spring!
- Bloom where you are planted
- Where flowers bloom, so does hope
With all these spring ideas to jumpstart your creativity, the hardest part will be choosing the Embroider Buddy® or embroidables you want to pair them with! Although all Buddies will look great with a hint of spring in their step, we have a few recommendations to get you started:
- Lambton Lamb Buddy
