march stitch along

I confess I never finished February’s stitch along. It’s still in the studio ready and waiting, but honestly I just can’t get into it with all the other projects I need to do too.

This month was a little easier to get into and more fun to stitch honestly. The pattern is from Wild Olive, who designs the cutest embroidery patterns ever! This one is no different.

I opted to stitch the pinata onto a tee for my chick. I’ve tried stitching onto dark colored material before and I’ve never had luck with the transfer method I used. This proved to be just as frustrating as before. I tried the embroidery transfer paper that you lay down and trace over. The pattern went on just fine, but by the time I was half way through stitching the horse outline, most of it was gone. I ended up free-handing the rest of it. I’m interested in trying the sulky iron-on dissovable paper, but have read mixed reviews. Would love to know if anyone has had success with this?

This month’s stitch along is a great pattern especially for a beginner embroiderer! Now I need to remember it when it’s time to do some birthday stitching!
