Doodle Stitch Along: Motif #4!

January 28, 2011, 14:08 pm  Posted by guestblogger

logoHey guys, it’s Aimee Ray again, with another Doodle Stitch Along post! Can you believe we’re almost done? This is week number 4, and the last of the free patterns is up for grabs: a super cute toadstool house. Thanks to everyone who participated in our gnomes vs. toadstools poll… gnomes are just too hard to beat but enjoy anyway!

Be sure to visit our Flickr group and check out all the awesome embroidery being done by our Stitch Along participants! You guys are really blowing me away with your work! It’s great to see all the different variations. Come back and join us once again next Friday, as we wrap up our Stitch Along with a project you can use all of your stitched motifs in. Here’s my motif set from last week (at left).

Have a great week and have fun stitching! And just in case you missed them, you can grab the previous motifs here, here, and here. And while you’re here, don’t forget to enter our giveaway…

    I embroider on things that I make with felt a lot for some reason. Like a felt Christmas ornament and then I add details with embroidery. I’m enjoying the stitch along because this time I’m making quilt squares with each motif and then am going to sew them together into a mini quilt. I’ve never done that before!

    I’m going to try embroidery on paper this weekend, for the cover of a new handmade journal!

    I love to use embroidery on practical things of course, but I just love embroidery (especially involving felt!) framed in a hoop and used as wall art. It’s so pretty. :)

    Embroidering pillowcases! You know how some women will have a large shoe or purse collection? I love bed linens!

    I love to use it on pillows and wall hangings..I also make ornaments and Aimee’s felt animals.

  • Crystal W.

    I am pretty inexperienced with embroidery but am very interested in getting started. I am loving your patterns in the doodle stitch along and think it would be so cute to hang individual hoops of embriodery in a nursery!

    Fantastic! I actually just learned embroidery a little over a year ago when I bought a crewel kit. My great-grandmother and her cousin both did incredible crewelwork, and I have a sentimental attachment to the decorative bellpulls in the Jacobean tree of life style because of that. I’m working on my second tree of life this year, in fact! I’ve really been enjoying the stitchalong for helping me try embroidery in a more modern way, though.

    It’s not my favorite, but I can’t seem to stop doing tea towels.

    I started out doing all my embroidery on baby items (burp cloths, onesies, tees etc) and I’m starting to get tired of that and moving onto other places…we’ll see where it leads :)

  • Jessie Hansen

    I love to use embroidery for wall hangings and in the kitchen.

    I love to embroider portraits of people I love and hang them on the wall instead of photographs. Plus it’s fun to really look and think about what that person looks like as you stitch their likeness.

  • Chelsea

    I have not tried your patterns out yet, but am looking forward too! You are a very talented artist! Chelsea

    I am just starting to teach myself embroidery and I chose the cute little gnome motif as my first official pattern to try. Even though I only really know a couple of basic stitches, I think it ended up looking really cute and fun. Thanks!

    Most of my embroidery has been framed or used on pillows. I would like to try using it on napkins, placemants and dishtowels! Just found this stitch along and will get caught up right away!
