June Stitchalong: You Choose!

We're in the process of choosing a winner for the May Stitchalong, stay tuned for that! In the meantime, there are so many stitchalongs and free patterns out there, this month I thought we'd let you find the free pattern of your choice, stitch it up, tag it JuneStitchalong and add it to the pool. To play along, be sure to link to the free pattern you use under your photo, so we can stitch it, too! Here are just a few suggestions from my rapidly growing "to stitch" list:

For one thing, there's the Lark Stitchalong this month with Aimee Ray:
Doodle Stitch Along 2
Aimee is adding a free pattern once a week for the rest of this month, so be sure to check those out! Join the stitchalong here

Or, how about a free pattern from our own Carina:
Free pattern - Parterre du Feu

Carina is having a special stitchalong on her blog next month (she'll share the details with you later) but to get you ready for that, why not download this lovely free pattern and stitch it up? She even includes a color guide, which is super helpful for people like me who are duds when it comes to choosing colors... Get the free pattern.

Here's another lovely free pattern I've been wanting to stitch ever since I saw it:
Valentines Pillows

This is a free pattern from Lazy May called "Valentine's Pillows" but I think they're romantic enough to be sweet for any time of the year. I think they'd make a really sweet wedding gift, and hey it's June right? Perfect! Get the free pattern

Or how about a fawn from the amazing Badbird:
Fawn, This months free pattern.

I'd love to see all of Badbird's freebies stitched up into a quilt, I think it would be amazing. Get the free pattern

Or how about this lovely vintage pattern from The Floss Box:
Pocket Design

Emily has tons of amazing little patterns for embroidery and cross stitch in her store - but be sure to visit her free patterns pages for gems like these. Get the free pattern

Or maybe a cute sugar cube embroidery pattern by Wild Olive:
sugar cube embroidery

Mollie has tons of amazing stuff on her blog, including her wonderful Embroidery Basics series, which is really worth a visit. Get the free pattern

So what do you think? Join in, tag your photos JuneStitchalong and let's see how many free patterns we can stitch this month! :)

  1. Wow! Pillows are wonderful!
    Please, can you say me where we can post photos and the free-pattern link for the pool?

  2. So, do we have to use someone else pattern? I have an idea for something I want to make. I'd draw up the pattern & offer it for free on my blog so, it would be a free pattern others can use too.

  6. I think that I absolutely must embroider a set of those pillowcases. SO cute.

    I don't suppose that would be a worthy Father's Day gift, eh? Pillowcases? Would it be like when Homer Simpson bought Marge a bowling ball? I guess that I'll make them for myself. :)

  9. Oh no! Too many patterns to choose from!!! hehe. Can't wait to go through em, though I've just started stitching a puppy on a vintage girls apron. I took it along to stitch while camping this last weekend :D And... crocheted a bikini top (by guesstimating- turned out a little small- hahahah). Fun trying any how! Happy Tuesday!

  11. I am so tempted to join in with this but I think I might have left it a little bit late. I love the pillow cases - think I'll have to add these to my ever expanding 'To Do' list.

  12. I second what Kat said, I've made one of my sketches available as a pattern on my blog, am I allowed to stitch it as my entry?

    It's available on my blog if anyone else wants to stitch it: http://modjoonthefly.blogspot.com/
