Celebrate summer’s tomato harvest! We’ve designed this large, 11″ x 11″ image featuring 7 of my favorite tomatoes for you to embroider. Hang it on the wall or make it into a pillow. The 12-page instruction booklet shows one way to stitch the design, but you can substitute with your own threads, fabrics, and stitches to your heart’s content. This project is creative and educational. It includes: a write-up of each of the beautiful tomatoes chosen and uses botanical terminology (with definitions) that can help you learn the names of tomato plant parts.
Use the pattern again and again (try different threads and fabrics) or transfer a single tomato or two to a towel, hankie, pillowcase, article of clothing, etc to get even more from the design (suggested as practice for beginners).

All of the seeds that I sell were lovingly homegrown and harvested by me, small scale, in my urban garden using organic methods only -- no chemicals or pesticides whatsoever. I DO NOT sell genetically modified products! Tomato varieties are isolated to stay true using the flower bagging method and I test for germination quality. I take special care in choosing varieties that I find unusual, interesting and fabulous, and/or especially suitable for growing in small space gardens.
