I enjoy hand stitching but am on a continuous quest to find things to stitch that can be functional. I came up with the idea to stitch on a removable fabric cover for a composition notebook. I then found a great tutorial from Smashed Peas and Carrots. Her fabric cover is fancier but I mostly followed her tutorial for these covers.
I created my pattern to use with a composition book cover but this pattern can have many different uses and be stitched many different ways. If you use this pattern, I would love to see your finished work.
Sheep Valentine Embroidery Pattern
I sewed the three fabric covers and embroidered them within a week. I had a deadline to get them in the mail before Valentine’s Day.
Even though I am learning many wonderful stitches with TAST 2012, I only used backstitch, straight stitch, and split stitch for this.
