Why O why does National Embroidery Month have to be the shortest month of the year? We are just getting started! And so you are prepared, we will be continuing N.E.M. into March with some big big plans. Any guesses? But in the meantime here are some of BRILLIANT sites to check out for embroidery fantastic-ism.
I just found Feeling Stitchy. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I haven’t lived. It’s the motherload of embroidery knowledge. I especially love their Stitchalongs. They provide one free pattern and all kinds of talented ladies make cool stuff using it and share. Gorgeous and inspiring!
I’ve seen this simple and lovely lampshade before and still think it’s beautiful and the technique can be used for so many projects. And doe-c-doe is a super fun site for embroidery and more! Adorable FREE vintage embroidery patterns every week!
And these Embroidered Mitered Napkins from the Design Sponge Sewing 101 series are so pretty! I want some. And the Mitered Corner tutorial is EXC!
This free embroidery pattern offers supreme cuteness.
And this is just hand embroidery! More on machine embroidery later. If you are into machine embroidery we want to chat with you. Send us a message, y’all! But in the meantime, if you are in the market for a new machine, Brother is running a MAD National Embroidery Month Sale on a bunch of sewing/embroidery machines and sergers thru Monday. Sweet!
And remember this is the last chance for you to leave a comment before we pick a winner of the adorable whale fabric.
