This pattern was inspired by the beautiful work posted by Rachel Burgoon on Facebook, showing a delicately stitched message on a miniature scroll. It translates to “Scream Inside Your Heart,” as posted by a Japanese amusement park to prevent the spread of Covid.
I created this using her recommended technique, creating the calligraphy using the site https://www.kenjisugimoto.com/shuji/ and then used my pattern editor of choice (PCStitch) to turn the image into a pattern.
This pattern area is 31 x 240 stitches, and she stitched it over one on 28 ct fabric, which would give it the final stitched area of ~ 1 inch by 8.5 inches.
Enjoy! Comment if you make this; I would love to see more finished versions!
