I made this booklet for Feeling Stitchy today. I put most of the tutorial on there, but I promised the pattern for the stitchery I did would be posted here. I got the idea from a coloring book, which looked like this:
Of course, I had to change it up a little, which seems to happen no matter what I do----is it "rebellion?", I have always wondered........I always have a little stash of embroidery thread that I take out of the needle as I am working on a project, and I cannot throw them away! So, I used them up to make the variegation in the colors in this project.
I decided I really liked the outline in black for this particular project. So, I started by outlining everything.
I took the embroidery to the printer and made color copies on cardstock and trimmed them at home. It's a great way to share your hard-worked embroidery with more than one person! And the little sewn booklet is a nice piece to carry in your purse with notebook and pen! Think of how special it will feel when you use it!
I forgot to purchase a matching pen for the display! It was too late this morning! But here it is open for you to see:
I will probably be putting this in my shop later today. I have a few more in the works, too. I think they will make great gifts!!!
okay, there you go!
