  5. My mom did designs like this on my dresses, back when girls had to wear dresses to school. She was very talented - didn't even need patterns to make my clothes.

  7. Really impressive. I'm always inspired my embroidery but feel that I may lack the patience to apply myself properly. I love your colour combinations.

  8. Hello! I love your patterns, I did a test run of this Rarity (to put on a fleece hat) but I ran into some trouble. It seemed as if the pattern shifted (the body outline) and the mane/tail had issues. I think it was something that was wrong with my fabric/stabilizer. Do you have any tips for embroidering on fleece?

    1. I have never embroidered on fleece. Due to it's stretchy nature I would think it would "warp" just as you are experiencing. It's probably not a good choice of fabric if you want the end result to remain stretchy. These designs do best when used on gingham. Thanks for popping in.

  9. I'm embroidering faces on some small felt farm animals I made using blanket stitch that I am setting aside to give my son for Christmas. Your sachet is such a beautiful project, I've been keeping my eye out for this post since
