Who else is excited about the solar eclipse happening on Monday?? I've never seen a total eclipse before and I can't wait to see it. So in anticipation, I've created this free eclipse embroidery pattern to share with you!
(you can download the pattern at the end of this post. :)
This is a simple and fun project that you can stitch up in a few hours and use in a variety of ways to create your own little piece of history.
I used a scrap of navy batik that reminded me of a night sky, with pale grey and aqua floss. Looking closely, you can see I used pretty basic stitches, split stitch and straight stitches for the lines, and long and short stitch for the solid areas. If you need a tutorial on that one (along with another moon pattern), check here!
I'm not sure what I'll do with mine yet, but it is a lovely little momento of a super cool and special event.
I hope you'll stitch up your own version of my eclipse pattern, and will be able to see it on Monday, August 21! Be sure and tag me @aimee_littledear on Instagram if you post pictures!
I've just listed a new dream catcher in the shop! I've been seeing this 'hoop within a hoop' technique lately and I had to try it out and put my own spin on it. :) It was so much fun to put together and I love how it turned out! This is such a unique piece and is the perfect addition to your special solace space. Find this, and other one of a kind embroidered dream catchers at www.littledear.etsy.com
