I realized I haven’t yet offered a free embroidery pattern. What an egregious oversight! And one I can remedy RIGHT NOW!
This is a great pattern for beginners. It’s super easy – just a bunch of backstitching and one lone French knot – which you can replace with a tiny straight stitch.
I colored the image in with colored pencils before stitching, but you could certainly fill with the fancy stitch of your choice.
If I were doing this again I would probably do all the outlining in DMC #3371 – I love that whimsical cartoony look. But I already showed you all an example of that here and I wanted to let you see the different look you get by outlining with matching thread. Remember – one of the great things about embroidery is that you get the image – but you can make it look however you like with your choice of color and stitches.
What you get
- Regular pattern for tracing
- Reversed pattern for use with iron on transfer tools
- Complete color and stitch guide
This is about as easy as it gets – one stitch (a dang easy one) and there’s a link to a video showing you how to do it.
Enjoy this free pattern! If you’ve never tried embroidery, this is a really easy project to start with.
