I like samplers because you can easily pull out individual elements to stitch on all kinds of different projects. Stitch a single bird on the corner of a tea towel. Blow your favorite up big and stitch it on a T-shirt. Add one to the pocket of an apron. Stitch one on a spring hat. Choose a few favorites and frame them in small embroidery hoops to make a collection on your wall. The possibilities are endless! With all Shiny Happy World embroidery patterns you receive a full-sized pattern for tracing, a reversed pattern for use with iron-on transfer pen, a complete color and stitch guide, and links to free online video tutorials showing you how to do every stitch needed for the project.
My name is Wendi Gratz. I hope you see something here that makes you smile! I spent over twenty years working in the children's book industry and the experience has left its mark on me - all my favorite artists are children's book illustrators, I believe people are basically good, and I can't abide beige.
All of my patterns include links to free online videos that will teach you every technique you need to know to complete the project. Happy stitching!
