Embroidered Mythical Creatures!

 


I am so excited to share my new book with you, Embroidered Mythical Creatures from C&T Publishing!  I’ve been a huge fantasy lover for as long as I can remember, I’ve been drawing unicorns, mermaids and dragons for as long as I could draw. So, putting all of my favorite mythical creatures into a book of iron-on transfer embroidery patterns has been a dream project for me! I think you’ll love stitching up these whimsical patterns as much as I loved drawing them. 

The book is available now at C&T website as well as other online book sources, and signed copies are in my shop!


The book includes more than 50 unique designs inspired by fairy tales and fantasy, as well as complete beginner’s embroidery instructions and stitch diagrams.


As a special early bonus, I have a cute little free pattern for you! This guy is one of my favorite mini motifs from the book. 


This little "butterfox" (fox-fly?) like most of my patterns, began as a tiny sketch in my sketchbook:


Here's the pattern:


Grab some supplies, download and Have fun!

  3. Such a cute little fox, but I don't think I've seen a creature you've made that isn't adorable! My favorite fantasy creature is the narwhal (which I see featured!), but seem to tend towards unicorns in my crafty pursuits. Thanks for a chance to win!
