Meet Sylvester. (A free embroidery pattern for you to stitch up!)
He’s a groovy monster who drives a groovy car.
He’s so proud of his car that he drives it everywhere – even when he only has to go a block or two.
Jo informs me that this is a bird – not a monster. I told her that any bird big enough and smart enough to drive a car is totally a monster. Big birds (but not Big Bird, of course) scare me.
This is a very easy embroidery pattern – great for beginners because it only uses a few easy stitches. The pattern has links to videos teaching all of them.
- lazy daisy
- split stitch
- satin stitch (for beaks and other pointy shapes)
- long & short stitch
You can stitch him on anything you can get in a hoop – a T-shirt, a towel, a pillow. You can even frame your finished picture in its hoop! He’d look great hanging on the wall of a kid’s bedroom – and you can customize the colors to anything you like.
