WAIT! This design is in my new bookAnimal Embroidery Workbook. If you think you may want to stitch two or more of my animal patterns you will actually save money if you purchase the book instead.
This pattern is designed for the beginner stitcher with some experience who is ready to explore thread painting. It includes fives different types of embroidery stitches including long and short stitch for thread painting the fox fur. This pattern is significantly longer than my other patterns as it includes full step by step instructions for thread painting the fox.
The design itself features a fun woodland scene dominated by little fox, front and center. She is surrounded by a grassy field filled with little flowers, ferns, a mushroom and Queen Anne's lace. She even has a few butterfly friends. Feel free to use the colors suggested in the pattern or use up whatever scraps you have at home.
Your purchase includes the embroidery pattern and a copy of my beginner guide. The embroidery pattern and tutorial includes a stitch key with suggested DMC embroidery floss colors, a thread painting tutorial specific to this design, including step by step diagrams detailing stitch placement and direction for the little fox with full color close up photos of the stitched pattern at key intervals. And of course it includes design sized for a 5 inch hoop ready to print.
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 with helpful videos, plus you can find some additional tutorialshere.
