Home Invasion! Free pattern pdf


Wanna stitch a home invasion this weekend? The awesome peeps at Arsenal Pulp Press are giving Feeling Stitchy readers a sneak peek of Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery with this creepy cool bug and insect project. There's flies, roaches and spiders to cover every creepy crawly base...

This awesomely creepy arachnid would look great creeping over a pillow or camping out on an apron:

Or you could really freak people out by stitching it on an elegant vintage doily, as the project author, Sarah Terry suggests:

Want the creepy free patterns? Here you go!

Want to learn more about Hoopla? We're super proud that 3 of our Feeling Stitchy contributors - Penny, Jo, and Jenny Hart all took part in this book. And you know, maybe we have a bit of a giveaway cooking... just maybe. Guess you better stay tuned! :)


  1. Oh my gosh, I love the idea of stitching a creepy thing on a flowery fabric. A definite addition to my "to-stitch" list!!

  2. These are great .. not too sure about having em crawling round on my table linen .. though I think these would suit my sis down to the ground

  3. Love these bugs. These are going on my "to do" list.

    By the way, I saw your post "testing" and clicked it to find that you "don't exist." What?


  4. Eww! Lol. I think these would look so cool embroidered on some of my toddler's clothes, actually. He'd be pretty pumped!
