Isolation Update: Free PDF!


Are you ready for some serious fun? Here’s how to put together our Isolation Update: No Pants kit, available as a free PDF, a Basic or Deluxe Kit and a Combo Kit with frame!

The above kits come with everything you need so you don’t have to leave the house (don’t you DARE!). But if you’re going to use the free PDF pattern, you will need the following supplies: Fabric, embroidery floss, needles, hoop at the very least. If you’re trying to do this all free, you could probably use tape and not even frame it, but keep the extra numbers handy.

These instructions will help you with the PDF or the kits of this therapeutic design!

PLEASE NOTE: I initially made a larger pattern—your stitched area will look smaller than these images!

1. Since you’ll be stitching all of this on one piece of fabric, make SURE you start in the center of the fabric and work your way out. Please note that your image will be a little smaller in dimensions (I changed the pattern after stitching). Also, I know my letters are uneven—that’s okay, you’ll be cutting them!

 

2. Once you’re done stitching (see previous instructions on back of pattern), figure out where you will cut the numbers. Water-erase pens are a great way to do this if you’ve got one (if not, we sell ‘em).

We’re Shipping As Usual

Even though things are far from normal right now, our job is to keep your spirits afloat as much as we can through the therapeutic pastime of cross stitch! We’ll be offering more free PDF patterns, and we’re shipping pretty quickly. We started self-isolating on March 9th because we’re being extremely careful in hopes that we’ll get to see my 95-year-old mom at some point. So don’t worry about us spreading anything through packages (if that’s even possible, I don’t think it is). And please remember that we have a ton of stuff in our Supplies section–don’t go to a craft store, just STAY HOME and we’ll ship it to you.  And don’t forget to sign up for our enews and join us on social media. Links are over there >> on the right.

We love you and are here for you. Reach out if you have any suggestions or requests or just want to connect. We’re all in this together. xoxoxo
