My daughter has been drawing cat faces all over the place. It's her new favorite doodle. She drew one recently in chalk on a slate stone in our yard and I loved the effect. So that's what I was going for with this simple line drawing. I stitched it in a pale (chalky) color on a dark background and with a slightly thicker thread than I usually use.
This is a great pattern for beginners. You only need one stitch and there's nothing too fussy or detailed about it. It would be cute on a tote bag or T-shirt - or a towel. It also fits perfectly into a 7" hoop.
In the second photo I reduced the size of the image and stitched it on a beanie. Cute!
I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider. I design patterns especially for beginners and I never release a pattern until I have videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project. Have fun!
