Covered in Stitches Entry: SNEAK PEEK

I have set aside Thursdays as day to share embroidery or hand sewn projects that I’ve been working on or patterns that I’ve come across.

This Thursday I don’t really have anything of my own to share. The needle hasn’t really touched the hoop for days as I’ve been working on a bunch of other things. So, instead I thought I would share a few patterns I came across this week…

If you’ve never heard of Urban Threads, you need to check them out. They have loads of awesome and different embroidery patterns (for hand stitching and machine) and most of them only cost $1 to download. They also allow you to use their patterns in items that you might sell, which is crazy generous and harder and harder to find.

Actually, that yellow one up in the corner with the orange flowers was in my play kitchen when I was a little girl!

Lastly I wanted to share April’s stitch along with Feeling Stitchy.

The official post isn’t going to be announced until Saturday, but they posted a teaser today. If there was anything I would aspire to learn how to do, it would be to create and sew even half as great as their guest artist is going to be this month. She is pretty darn amazing. It will be awesome to see how she goes about creating all the amazing stuff she does.
