Ombre Stenciled Pillowcases | Lula Louise
I love the combination of embroidery and fabric paint on these pillowcases! Because the design is just on the edges of the cases it doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the patterns on the bed. If you wanted you could make these in colours to suit the linens you already have, or if you’re looking for a challenge you could use these as a jumping off point to making your own bed set!

Native American Inspired Embroidered Alphabet | Feeling Stitchy
Even if you don’t stitch, I encourage you to click through and read about the inspiration behind this sweet cross stitch - it’s inspiring and makes me want to go out and volunteer too! But also there’s this great alphabet, in some very pretty colours that I’m going to pick up next time I’m in Spotlight. Make yourself a sampler or use in your projects.

Embroidered Tea Towel | Ladyface
I love to share my crafts with people, but most people cringe when you mention embroidery! Well I don’t think this sweet little honeycomb pattern would make anyone cringe - it’s so easy to modify to suit the colours of your kitchen and it’s simple enough to fit into most decor. If you’re not keen on doing it on a tea-towel, how about a hand towel, a bag or even a tshirt?

Dutch Canal Houses Embroidery | Gingerbread Snowflakes
Last week was pretty much blog-free because I was on a deadline to finish my dad’s birthday present - a beautiful blue and white cross stitch of The Willow Pattern. He loved it, and I was so pleased with the result. Now I’m a little bit in love with blue and white cross stitches - there is something simplistic but sweet about them. So i was immediately drawn to this lovely Dutch canal house pattern and it’s shades of blue. Of course, you can do yours in any colours you wish - let your imagination run free and make it your own!

Jelly Bean Embroidery | Wild Olive
Easter started in January this year. That’s right, next to the clearance rack with the tinsel, bon-bons and baubles were Easter eggs! Crazy. And it’s so hard - Easter is when they bring out Cadbury Creme Eggs and they are my weakness! Do they have these anywhere else? Hoo boy. Anyway, I’ve now started a healthy eating diet to loose weight, feel better, etc along with the rest of my family. It’s still nice to give gifts though, so I’ll be making some lovely little hand made items for my family instead (except for my niece - she’ll still get chocolate!) This super cute jelly bean embroidery pattern is perfect for my sister - how cute is that little one in the bottom with the frowney face?! All the sweetness, none of the calories!

Ferris Wheel Embroidery Pattern | Just Crafty Enough
Embroidery is such a calming pass time, I suggest it to any crafty folk out there who are looking for a project! This is a really sweet pattern too, and it’s free yo! You can go for the black or try a hot pink or sky blue. If you’re feeling adventurous or want a long term project, you could try making this A3 size! That would look awesome!
