Embroidery: New Holiday Kits!

By on October 23, 2017

These kits have been such a long time coming and I’m so excited to finally be offering an option for full embroidery kits again! Just in time for Christmas, I am offering up these two very popular designs as a limited run: My Luke 2 Christmas tree pattern and the Scroll Tree pattern.

Each kit contains a pre-printed full color design on cotton fabric, all the threads you need and a needle to get started. I’ve also included an instruction page with links to how-to videos.

Both of these kits are great for beginners and advanced stitchers alike!  I’ve included an option for you to purchase either a simple kit (without a hoop and buttons for the scroll tree) OR a complete kit that includes everything you need to stitch once it arrives at your door.

Coming in November to Instagram, I’ll be working through a stitch along of the Scroll Tree pattern. This pattern includes 3 basic embroidery stitches that everyone should learn and I’m excited to work through it together!

throwback thursday {irish blessing embroidery}

By on September 25, 2014

On Thursdays I “throwback” by pulling from my archives and remembering where I’ve come from and this journey I’m on. Today I share one of my first commissioned embroideries. This Irish Blessing embroidery was the request of a customer and has become one of my most popular patterns and kits over the years. It’s a great pattern for beginners, is customizable because of the applique and makes a super gift for a baptism, birth or just because. Here’s the original post back from September 2011.

I was commissioned via etsy to embroider this Irish Blessing and I’m so happy I did it. It was a great experience designing where to put the applique and a great test of how much my hands can handle embroidering in one day too!

I’m really pleased with how it turned out. So much so that I listed it on etsy!
