Hand stitch Sleepy Sam, this cute cat embroidery design. His red colour scheme and folk inspired motifs make him the perfect kitty for some relaxing seasonal stitching for you, and with Christmas coming up, maybe a special hand made gift by you for a cat lover.
This is a pdf hand embroidery pattern written in English. The file contains 4 pages and consists of a colour photograph of the final design, instructions on transferring the pattern to fabric, a diagrammatic guide to the embroidery stitches used, a full size pattern for printing and tracing, and a stitch guide to help you to complete the design.
To recreate Sam, you will need suitable fabric (I work on unbleached calico), an embroidery needle, stranded cotton in variegated red, variegated mustard, white, gold and black (suggested thread references are given in the instructions) and an embroidery hoop (8 inches is perfect) to keep the work taut while you are stitching. The hoop can also form a great and inexpensive way of framing and hanging your picture once it is finished.
The design uses basic, accessible embroidery stitches (a guide is included in your download) and therefore would suit most levels of stitcher.
The pdf download is designed to be printed onto A4 paper and will be available to you once payment has been confirmed.
A kit version of this design is also available. Please see separate listing.
