March Stitch Along - week 3

march stitch along week 3

Here's a shot of me satin stitching those letters!

Elsewhere in the pool there have been octopuses on the most amazing background fabric.

And there has been gentleman octopus.

And footballing octopus (I love the applique footballs - you can read why the octopus is called Paul here, it's very apt!)

It's not too late to still join in with this month's stitch along, you can find the patterns (and other great examples of this pattern stitched up) if you search under the tag MarchStitchAlong on Flickr and if you'd like to have a go at satin stitching the letters like me and oztheawesomewarewolf, there is a great, very comprehensive satin stitching tutorial here from Sublime Stitching.

I will do a full round up of this month's Stitch Along next Thursday, happy stitching!

Hi, I'm Jo - I feature new embroidery patterns Sundays on Feeling Stitchy. I also post on our Twitter and Pinterest.

Is there a new pattern you'd like us feature? Email me!
