Have a Heart!

I have just completed the finishing touches to my newest pattern release, "Have a Heart". I thought Valentine's Day would be the perfect time for this special design because of the little heart and bunny motif. I absolutely love the way the photos turned out and I would like to thank my adorable model for making this design look so sweet.

This design features shadow work embroidery, one of my very favorite techniques to stitch and to teach. You might remember a few years ago, my book, Mastering Shadow Work Embroidery was published. If shadow work embroidery is something you have been wanting to try but don't know where to begin, you should consider purchasing this book.


This is an extreme closeup of the embroidery design worked in shadow stitch with Floche embroidery cotton. A #7 Between needle was used because of its round eye.



  1. So gorgeous.. glad to have found your blog!!

  2. That is the most precious baby outfit I've seen in a while. I love the shadow work embroidery. I'm from the old school and think babies should look like babies.
    I used several of your patterns when my grands were born, and I just love them all. So glad I found your blog.

  3. Hola!
    Soy de Puerto Rico y estoy interesada en las madejas matizadas para bordado. Trabajo ropa de bebe. También me gustaría saber si tienes en venta el romper o bombacho que aparece en tu blog con los bordados de corazón. De no tener ese me gustaría saber si tienes patrones para la venta para bebes de 0-3 meses. Ya que en tu blog no aparecen patrones para la venta. Espero tu comunicación.
