Proudly show your magical sisters some love with this trio of handstitched symbols
With Halloween and Samhain around the corner, now is the perfect time to show off your magical and spiritual allegiances. Whether you’re a feminine witch who looks to the high goddesses for guidance, a moon worshipper that harnesses lunar energy for spells or an earth lover who’s really in tune with nature, our three motifs will suit your witch tribe and allow you to show off who you are. Simply sew the design onto felt and stitch your new patch onto your bag, jacket, cushion or tapestry. You can even create larger scale ones to use as coasters!
• Coloured felt
• Embroidery floss
1 Cut a 6cm wide circle from felt and edge with a blanket stitch in a contrasting colour.
2 Trace your design onto the felt with a soft coloured pencil and work a neat backstitch over the lines using three strands of embroidery thread.
3 Cut applique motifs from felt, lightly glue to the centre of the patch and secure with small oversew stitches. Add backstitch details to accentuate the motif.
4 Fix the patch to clothing or bag with heat-activated hemming tape or small oversew stitches.
