Rosie is a British textile designer who’s fascinated by the versatility of mark making. She’s best known for making useful and stylish products for the everyday, by combining her sketchbook snippets with amazing textile materials like leather.

We’ve long admired Rosie’s style and her use of materials, so we were thrilled when she agreed to bring her touch of cool to our sewing boxes!

The RDK sewing tool set for Floss & Mischief features Rosie’s signature fleck pattern, screen-printed in pastel pink onto stone grey leather and is topped with her iconic RDK seal in silver foil. Sleek metal stud closures and raw leather edges, complete the look.

Each piece is carefully screenprinted, cut and sewn by Rosie in her Devon (UK) studio, making them the ultimate luxury for any sewing box.

New Tawny Spider cross-stitch pattern

Tawny Spider hoopla

Staring at spiders is not on our list of favourite things to do. So when one mischievous stitcher asked us to create a cross-stitch pattern of an orb-weaving spider, we needed some Dutch courage.

Thankfully we persisted to create this colourful character, who you now get to stitch up without the creepiness.

The pattern is super easy to stitch especially as it uses only one stitch: full cross-stitch. Its one-bobbin difficulty means it’s brilliant for newbies.

Grab the Tawny Spider cross-stitch pattern now from our pattern shop.

Guess who’s back

He was one of the first cross-stitch patterns we created as part of our taxidermy-inspired collection, so it’s fair to say that the Green Beetle occupies a special place in our heart. Now, after a long absence, he’s back with a bang!

During his travels he underwent a little makeover including an image (branding) overhaul, some colour tweaking and a new photoshoot to show off his new look. We’re told he feels rejuvenated and ready to mingle.

The colourful Green Beetle cross-stitch pattern is available to buy exclusively as a PDF download from our online pattern shop. Welcome home little critter!
