stitch-love-along // round three


I'm not entirely sure where the last 2 weeks went to. But I know that some of you have kept busy by making things for round two of the Stitch-Love-Along! Take a look at what's been posted on Instagram and then see a few that I just had to share...

Finished round two of the #stitchlove #stitchlovealong

That last one is the firefly jar, customized to be a Legend of Zelda version. So fun!

If you participated in round two, you get a free pattern! If you aren't quite finished, don't worry about it. So long as you got it started and have plans to finish, you're good. To claim your free pattern, send me an email (molliejohanson at gmail.com) and I'll send it over to you. The pattern is a set of templates to create a special pair of mini plush (in the same style as the Awesome Outback Trio), created just for this round of the Stitch-Love-Along.

And now, here we go for round three!

Stitch Love Along Round 3

This round you get to stitch a critter! Choose any embroidery motif from Stitch Love: Sweet Creatures Big & Small, and embroider it on any handmade item. You can choose something you've already made, or make something new just for this.

Ideas for things that you might make with a critter or two: mug rug, zip pouch, mini quilt, napkins, placemats (like the ones from the book!) or more. This handy link will take you to some projects here on Wild Olive that might work for this too!

Round 1 // August 4-18
Stitch a Pocket Pal (any Stitch Love embroidery motif with the Pocket Pal project on page 53)

Round 2 // August 18-September 1
Make an Animal (choose a project that creates an animal)

Round 3 // September 1-15
Stitch a Critter (embroider any Stitch Love motif on a handmade item)

Share your progress on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, or your own blog. This is all about stitching along together and sharing with each other, so be sure to tag your posts #StitchLoveAlong. We all want to see your materials, your process, and of course...the finished project!

At the end of each round everyone who participates will receive a free Stitch Love pattern designed just for that round of the Stitch-Love-Along!

Many thanks to Faith and Becca for helping me with the Stitch-Love-Along! They are such supportive gals!
