Making of the February Violet
Violet is the birth flower for the month of February. We chose to use the African Violet for February (even though it's not technically a violet - more on that below!) This flower typically has large, heart-shaped leaves with purple flowers. If you see a violet plant, you'll see that the leaves take up most of the grow area with a spot in the middle for the crinkly looking flowers, which is represented in this embroidery pattern!
The inspiration for the February Violet embroidery pattern came from Alyssa's beautiful African Violet. This plant decided to flower in full-bloom while we were brainstorming flower ideas. Here are a couple of pictures of the inspiration behind this pattern:
Is the African Violet an imposter?
Did you know, the African Violet isn't technically a violet at all? It's actually in a completely different genus all together! The African Violet is a common household plant, whereas a true violet can be found growing in the garden or even in the front yard. The African Violet did get its name from true violets, though, because of the resemblance of its big leaves and purple flowers. Either way, we love the African Violet and don't mind that it's an imposter!
