The Free Pattern!

It’s my turn for Pat Sloan’s Bird Song fabric tour, and we have so much FUN planned for you today!! We have a GORGEOUS FREE pattern for you, a FABRIC & THREAD giveaway, and lots of other beautiful inspiration!

First, let’s talk about this beautiful FREE wall hanging and hand embroidery pattern I am offering this week only! I’m calling this project, “Kind Words” — and don’t we all need MORE of that nowadays!? The quote on the heart says:

The world is full of kind people. If you can’t find one, be one.

You can get the FREE pattern for the hand embroidery and the wall hanging by filling in the boxes below. You’ll also receive links to my free “Getting Started with Hand Embroidery” videos, so if you’re a “newbie,” this is a great place to start.

And friends – the wall hanging has prairie points! They are so darn cute! I tinted the fabric with fabric painting before I did the embroidery (that’s something we learn in The Art of Home Club!) The sample below was stitched with my favorite floss, Aurifloss by Aurifil.

This pattern is part of The Art of Home Club, – taken from a larger exclusive Club “collection,” which also includes this beautiful quilt AND a table runner AND 4 more hand embroidery patterns AND 5 applique patterns. WOW! You can find out more about The Art of Home Club and how to get the additional projects, applique, and hand embroidery patterns – click here.

The Fabric!

Now, let’s talk FABRIC because these projects have been made even more beautiful with the Birdsong line by Pat Sloan (for Benartex.) This fabric is stunning! I had sketched out ideas for the projects above but hadn’t done anything with them yet, and then Pat approached me with a preview of her new line. I immediately knew it was the EXACT right fabric for these projects! You know how much more FUN a project is to work on when you absolutely LOVE the fabric?? That’s how I felt about working on these! They are fresh and pretty and whimsical, and I can’t tell you how much I love them (especially the birds and florals!!)

The timing of Pat Sloan’s Bird Song fabric release and my latest collection could not have been more perfect!

I’m excited to offer you this affiliate link to get the fabrics here!
