Mmmmm. . . strawberries. My daughter and I pick gallons of them every summer and enjoy them all year. Strawberry sorbet, strawberry lemonade, sliced strawberries on pancakes, French toast and ice cream all so, so delicious!
The circle images are just the right size to top a small jar of strawberry jam. Stitch one up without the running stitch border around it. Cut it out with a generous margin of fabric (I like about 3 inches all the way around) using pinking shears for a cute finish. Remove the canning ring, center the fabric over the sealed lid, and screw the ring back on over the fabric. Easy peasy and so cute!
You'll receive a full-sized pattern for tracing. The total image is 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" but the best thing about samplers is pulling out your favorite bits and pieces. You'll also get a reversed image for use with iron-on transfer tools. And, of course, I'll send you a complete color and stitch guide. The pattern includes links to videos teaching you all of the stitches I used - so it's super easy for beginners.
If you do the full sampler it will probably take 1-2 evenings. Pulling out your favorite bits and pieces will take a lot less time.
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!
