May Stitch-along Update

We hope you're enjoying this month's fun stitch-along!  (You can find the original post and pattern here.)  We challenged everyone to not only stitch up this precious little pattern, but to think of a way to use your embroidery in a finished product.  A few fantastic projects have already started showing up in the Embroidery pool over on Flickr!

First up, Gemmabelle decided to stitch her little girl up on a black background -- such a great variation.

But wait -- that's not just any old piece of black fabric ... it's a corduroy tote bag!

Great job, Gemmabelle.

The other project that's been added to the group is this fabulous piece by Aimee (daisy eyes).  First, laying out her color options:

All stitched up:

And sewn into an adorable pillowcase skirt!

And as an added bonus, Aimee has written up a great tutorial for this skirt.  Check it out if you want to make your own!

Thanks so much to Aimee and Gemmebelle for embracing the spirit of this month's stitch-along, and for providing such great inspiration for the rest of us.  Want to make your own Little Curtsy item?  Just grab the pattern and get stitchin'.  Don't forget to add your photos to the Embroidery group on Flickr, and be sure to tag them with MayStitchalong2012.


  1. aww..thanks for the compliment! It was loads of fun to stitch and create!

  2. Very nice jobs! :-)

  3. Thanks to all of you for your great embroidery it's really nice to scroll though your work.

  4. This may be a silly question, but how do you get the pattern onto the material after you print the pattern out?
