Seahorse Embroidery Pattern

 
Embroidery is one of those things that I love to do anywhere anytime. In fact, that is one of the reasons I love it so much- you can do it anywhere and anytime. My hands like to be busy. If we are in the car I love to have something to do with my hands- it used to be knitting but I found that a dropped stitch here or there because I was only half paying attention sometimes was really annoying. Embroidery is perfect because you always know just where you are.  I handed out these patterns at Spring Market and would love to share this with you now. The pattern to download is
 
 
Here it is all sewn up into a pillow.
 
 

Embroidery was something I have enjoyed since I was a child. It is one of the first bits of sewing I taught my own kids to do. The colors you can get of embroidery floss make me so happy and the feel of the stitches on the fabric is so satisfying. I am working on a line of embroidery patterns that I hope to have out this fall. For now, I hope you get started on your own stitchy seahorse!

I just love you embroidery patterns. I am so excited to see that you are working on some patterns. I love to do hand embroidery. I totally agree with you you can do it anywhere and do it any time. I have a great love for embroidery.

Intown Quilters in Tucker, GA. Is selling this "pattern" for $2.50. I wish I had come to the website where I could've gotten it the PDF for free!

puddingpies- I am very sorry to hear this! This has always been a freebie pattern and it should not be sold anywhere as I have never sold it to anyone for re selling or given permission to do so.
