There's a new embroidery pattern for sale in my shops!
The pattern is called "Little Things" and features a wren (a small, sweet bird) and the motto "unto little things is a certain grace annexed". The motto is from a 16th Century book of proverbs (I've slightly modernised the spelling!) and is basically a fancy way of saying "small is beautiful".
I originally designed this pattern for &Stitches Ezine (published this spring) - I was so pleased with how this little bird turned out, I'm really glad to now be able to offer it as a printable PDF in my shops.
The PDF includes a list of the DMC embroidery thread colours I used to stitch my wren and a couple of different versions of the pattern - just the wren on its own (without the ribbon) and a version without any text so you can make the bird say whatever you fancy.
Like all the PDF patterns for sale in my shops, you can use it to make handmade items for sale at craft fairs or in your Etsy/Folksy/etc shop and to teach sewing classes or run workshops.
The wren pattern is available from my Etsy shop as an instant download or you can buy it from my Big Cartel shop and I'll email the pattern to you within 48 hours.
