May Stitchalong: Cate Anevski

May Stitchalong pattern!

How about another stitchalong? Hmmmm? :)

This month's pattern was brought to us by the super-talented Cate Anevski - we've featured her wonderful embroidery patterns often here, and we're so honored that she created something special for Feeling Stitchy readers!

just the PB + J

That's right, you're looking at a fully customizable PB + J pattern! Maybe you want to stitch just the PB + J?

Or maybe you want your sandwich to say:

Or maybe, you want your sandwich to say a phrase of your very own? Well, we got you:
your pb + j can say whatever you want

I love how Cate's design echoes the quirky, cute kitschiness of vintage patterns, combined with her own, unique feel. This is gonna be a fun one, guys, I can feel it!

And... there's a prize this month!

For a little added inspiration, and as a thank you to all of you for making our first-ever stitchalongs such a hit - Cate will choose one winner who'll receive one free embroidery pattern  from her store (choose your favorite) and a little bundle of floss and fabric from yours truly. Sound awesome? I hope so!

And, since we started this stitchalong a bit late, just know that you'll have until June 7 to complete your stitching. On that day, we'll collect all the entries and Cate will choose our winner.

Wanna take part? Just tag your stitching "MayStitchalong" and add it to our pool!

P.s. to those of you with questions about how or where to start, I'll be checking in this weekend with my progress and links to cool tutorials, etc. See you then! :)

Hi, I'm floresita, editor of Feeling Stitchy. I'm an avid stitcher, knitter, and crafter. You can see more of my stitching on Instagram and my blog. My vintage transfer collection is on Vintage Transfer Finds.

Feel free to email me with any ideas for the blog!


  1. Ohhh I love her stuff so much! I will definitely be doing this!

  2. I'm new, very new, to stitching. I LOVE it!! I'm so excited to join this stitch-along! Can you tell the newbie something basic do I get this pattern from my computer screen to my fabric???

  3. Love it! Going to embroider it my son (studying and living in his own household). He likes it too, but suggested I'd make the jar with a lemon as lemon curd is his favorite ;)

  4. Does one follow the outline of the pattern? Or do you fill it in?

  5. Oh, this would be perfect for a gift I've been planning! Another new stitcher here who'd love to join in. :)

  6. Yay! I've had so much fun with the other stitchalongs. Can't wait to get this one going. :)

  7. Cute! I've printed my pattern.


  8. How fun!
    It will be neat to see what everyone does given the same pattern.

  9. Cute, cute, cute... and I'm about to fly across the country! What better time to start??? :D Thanks for the pattern :D

  10. I have been thinking about taking a stab (ha! get it?!) at stitching. On May 28, I decided to start with the May stitch along - and just made it to Michael's before they closed! I tried linking up to your flickr photostream but couldn't quite figure it out. Here's my finished product.

    I'm not sure what to do with it now. I'm leaning towards making a pillow but the kids want me to hang it up in their bedroom!

  11. Oh my gosh, I have to try this! We eat so much pb&j in my house, this is perfect.
    Thanks for the template, I will try to get it done before June 7th, but it's gonna be close.

  12. Wow, I am feeling really good having found this delightful spot. I have you top marked to spend time reading, looking and making things.

  13. Wow!! This is truly cute. I'm going to make this for my daughter's hope chest. She will love it. She also loves pb & jelly sandwiches. Thanks for sharing.
