Nevertheless, She Persisted hand embroidery pattern - instant download. This is a printable, DIY pattern for this pattern; stitch your own today!

This pattern celebrates the strength of determined women, throughout the ages and around the world. From Laura Ingalls Wilder to Marie Curie, Jane Austen to Jane Goodall; from the young mamas to the great grandmothers, to the very littlest girl. Women and girls face challenges large and small every day - and stand up to them, with pluck and determination, hard work and grace - and always with persistence. And that is worth celebrating.

This pattern looks complex, but in reality the stitches used are very simple! I've included plenty of photos and suggestions for different ways to stitch the flowers.

The lettering may need to be handled a little differently than is shown in my photos; when I print this in my studio, I use screen printing to print the pattern with ink - and you'll need to approach it in a different way. However, I've offered some suggestions in the pattern file as to how you might achieve a similar effect at home - and I've included a version of the pattern with slender lettering, which you may prefer if you choose to stitch the letters. Please convo me with any questions you might have about this, before you purchase the pattern. I'm happy to help!

File contains:
*Nevertheless, She Persisted embroidery pattern in printable format
*A second variation of the pattern with slender text
*Tips and instructions on completing the pattern
*Recommendations for fabric, thread, and colour choices
*Tips on how to transfer the pattern to your fabric
*Includes regular and reversed versions
*8 page file in total

The pattern is sized to fit in a 6" hoop, but you are free to scale up or down as you'd like.

This is a pattern only; you will need your own fabric, thread, hoop, and needle.
