It started as a doodle on an envelope, then I made the same doodle on a hundred envelopes because it was so much fun. Then I got out the good paper and made a bigger painting. Then I added stitches and decided to print it on fabric and make it a sampler. Then I started stitching the example, and thought it would be more fun to have everyone stitch AT THE SAME TIME!
WHAT IF? What if we paired it with all things red and white striped? What if there were fun prizes for doing it? Would anyone play along? Will you?
*Stitch-A-Long starts August 8 and will run through September 26th (2016), with weekly prizes, and a big Grand Prize at the end.
*Sampler is printed on 100% cotton, and arrives ready to hoop and stitch. I recommend backing it with another piece of woven cotton or linen (old bed sheets, muslin, whatever you have laying around.)
* Printed area measures 5.5x8, with a 1.5 inch border around the edges.
