I think the design of the pattern is just gorgeous. Isn’t the little seahorse adorable?
Emily, the artist behind the Just Beachy Embroidery Patterns, asked me if I’d be interested in reviewing one of her patterns. I love helping out other artists and reviewing products but I’m the first to admit that my embroidery skills aren’t super.
I love the look of hand stitching I just don’t often have the patience to do it, but every now and then I will pick up a needle just for fun.
I was originally planning to stitch the Just Horsin’ Around pattern on a piece of muslin, but then I thought “why not on paper?” Then I can include it into my scrapbook. So that’s what I did.
I actually only used part of the pattern on my page (just the seahorse) but I think I’ll stitch the whole thing, maybe on fabric this time.
Here’s what you get with the Just Horsin’ Around pattern:
Instructions and Tips.
Even for a beginner embroiderer like me, the instructions and pattern were pretty easy to follow! I had to leave a few stitches out of the tail, simply because paper rips easily and you can’t poke too many holes in it. 😉
Here’s a picture of Emily’s beautiful stitching:
