Hello, Lark Crafts Friends!
With Valentine’s Day in just a few days, what could be more perfect than to make something sweet for someone you care about? Or perhaps something special for yourself? No matter who you are stitching for, my book Stitch Love: Sweet Creatures Big & Small is the perfect way to get started.
Along the idea of stitching love, we’re having a little Valentine blog hop! Be sure to visit all of the stops along the way this week. You’ll see fun and simple things to make AND you’ll pick up some free patterns featuring a few of my critter friends celebrating Valentine’s Day!
Have you heard of a hairy-nosed wombat? Well, this is heart-nosed wombat! He’s just a baby, and I promise that he’ll love you forever.
I stitched up this little guy on linen (I printed the pattern at 75% for the brooch), then I used the instructions for the Undersea Buddies Brooch Trio from Stitch Love: Sweet Creatures Big & Small. This is one of those projects that is quick to put together, and you can use any motif with it!
Wouldn’t you love to have a little wombat on your winter coat? The embroidery motif is free for you! Just download the PDF and get ready to stitch!
We’ve also got a little something extra. One lucky winner will receive this hand-stitched Heart-Nosed Wombat brooch, plus the set of Undersea Buddies brooches, AND a copy of Stitch Love, compliments of Lark Crafts.
To enter, leave a comment (maybe you’d like to share what animal you’d like to stitch the most!), and we’ll select a random winner. Giveaway ends Sunday, February 15 at 9pm EST .
And don’t miss all the other patterns on the Stitch Love Valentine Blog Hop!
