Update! There is now a 1 hr thread painting demo on my YouTube channel! Watch me stitch the red squirrel and follow along: https://jessicalongembroidery.com/blogs/video-tutorials/sharing-squirrels
This sweet sharing squirrels pattern is the perfect project to help you get more comfortable with thread painting as you practice blending using three colors. The wreath makes a lovely border for our sharing friends but can be repurposed for future fall themed embroidery art.

14 skeins of DMC cotton embroidery floss

Hand embroidery needles
The color printed embroidery instructions
A copy of the Beginner Guide
Your purchase includes the Sharing Squirrels embroidery pattern and a copy of my beginner guide. The embroidery pattern includes a stitch and direction key, step-by-step instruction, a stitch direction and padding key for thread painting, a color photo of the finished embroidery art, and the design ready for you to shrink or enlarge for future projects.
The beginner guide includes a supplies list with suggested products based off of my experience, tips on how to get started, including pattern transfer suggestions for future projects, plus diagrams of stitches. The beginner guide can also be found onlinehere plus you can find some additional tutorialshere.
My kits do not include hand embroidery scissors but I do offer aselection. You may want to invest in a high quality embroidery hoop if you have trouble maintaining tension with the included hoop. I bind my hoops with fabric or fabric tape to help, but you may find plastic, metal or high quality wood hoops easier to use. You can then use the wooden hoop included in the kit for framing your finished work.
This pattern is for personal use only. Please do not copy or resell finished product.
