Autumn Embroidery Pattern- In English and Auf Deutsch!

If you have been following me on Instagram or Facebook, then you will have already seen that I’ve released my first Fall embroidery tutorial last week. It features a squirrel with a little leaf crown drinking a tiny cuppa’ coffee (or hot chocolate or black tea, however you want to interpret it). I had a pause from working my children’s book a couple weeks ago and used this time to whip up the tutorial. The most exciting part is it is also available in German. My husband and I worked on the translation together, but I was able to write about three quarters of it without his help. This feels like a huge accomplishment considering that 3 and a half years ago I could only say “hello” and “how are you” in German.

The tutorial costs 5 Euros and is available on my Dawanda or Etsy shop. It includes a digital PDF pattern that can be printed at home, a materials list, step-by-step photos, a stitch guide and some helpful links if you are not familiar with the stitches being used. This pattern is suitable for stitchers with a beginning knowledge of embroidery and also for those who are interested in trying out applique.

I’m hoping to release a few Christmas tutorials as well, so if you are into stitching, stay tuned for those!




Thanks for reading, once again 🙂
