Stack of Books, Free Embroidery Pattern

UPDATE:  I shared this project with my subscribers earlier this year, it's now available as a printable PDF pattern in my Etsy shop!


The next freebie for my pattern newsletter subscribers is perfect for book lovers!


You can stitch this as it is, or add your own text to the spines to customise it. If you're a confident stitcher you could add the titles of your favourite books. For an easier, quicker project stick to the surnames of your favourite authors!

This pattern is fairly easy to sew with backstitch, though I'd recommend taking care as you sew all those straight lines. A bit of patience will make all the difference to the neatness of your finish. I'll be including two versions of the embroidery pattern: one with the book page lines added and one without in case you'd prefer to stitch those freehand.

I'll be sending the book stack pattern out to my pattern newsletter subscribers sometime in the next couple of days, then after that it'll be added to the new subscriber sign-up email. Currently you'll also get a free tutorial for sewing a cute felt teacup and teapot brooch when you subscribe.
