Sweet Treats Embroidery Pattern: Jammy Biscuits

Time for something sweet and simple to stitch!


Over the next few weeks I've got a whole bunch of fun little "sweet treats" projects to share with you guys... including a trio of quick and easy biscuit embroidery patterns!

First up: a jammy biscuit embroidery pattern.

This sweet little pattern fits nicely inside a three inch embroidery hoop (perfect for making little embroidered ornaments!) or would be fab to stitch onto small handmade gifts like coin purses, or as a small detail on a larger project. You could also stitch the design onto felt and make an embroidered brooch, or mount the design on a greetings card.

It's adapted from the felt jammy biscuit sewing tutorial I shared a few years ago - and like the felt version, I've included two options for the embroidery patterns so you can sew biscuits with hearts or circles in the centre.

(I say "a few" but according to the date on that blog post it was actually EIGHT YEARS AGO. My goodness. All that time has passed but my sweet tooth remains as strong as ever, haha)

The heart version would make a sweet gift for someone you love, I think! Or just for someone with a serious love for biscuits! :)

I stitched my jammy biscuit with backstitch, using three strands from six-stranded embroidery thread (floss). I used red for the central heart, and a light brown for the rest of the design. 

If you're sewing onto a white background like I did make sure you choose a brown which is dark enough to stand out nicely against the white.

More biscuit-y embroidery patterns coming soon!

This pattern is for non commercial use only: you can use it to stitch as many biscuits as you want for yourself or as gifts, but please don't make any for sale. You may borrow the photo if you want to blog about this project, but remember to credit me and link back to this page on my blog, and do not reproduce my entire post or share my pattern on your site. Thanks!
