From cozyblue:

from my original line drawing, WHALE OF A TIME is a companion piece to my sea captain (and his wife and daughter) but it looks equally awesome on it's own too.
the scallops and lines echo the sea captain design, but it's a lot less detailed so it stitches up quickly and easily.

here's what you'll get:

  • PDF file detailing several methods of transfer instructions 
  • full sized pattern 
  • list of the embroidery floss color and stitches i used in the example photo.. feel free to use them as a guide if you like, or do something totally unique -- it's up to you!
  • my 'getting started with hand embroidery' guide and an instructional how-to for my favorite basic stitches


*design is approximately 5.5", and fits nicely in a 6" hoop
