Cottage Garden Samplings

Vinniey Tan's design style is most influenced by the world around her. She loves doodling, gardening, colorful flowers, herbs, and fruit trees. Her designs are often inspired by music and anything she observes, whether it is a word, sight, sound, mug, photo, antique, or her daughters' handwriting and doodling. Vinniey's designs often take the elements of primitive style such as alphabets, flowers, and small motifs arranged in a sampler format. She stitches all of her own models and improvises colors and details in the process. Most of her charts are in easy-to-read symbols.
