Summer Nights Stitch-along with Sew Mama Sew!

Summer Nights Stitch-along with Sew Mama Sew!

If you’re looking for a fun summer project, check out the Stitch-Along we (Little Dorrit & Co.) are doing over at Sew Mama Sew! We designed a sweet little Summer Nights pattern and are walking new stitchers through the entire project, step by step, in three parts. But I hope you experienced stitchers will join in too – we’d absolutely love to see you use your stitchy creativity to work it up your own way!

Check out ‘Part I: Prepping an Embroidery Project + Getting Started’ right here, and post your projects with the hastag #SummerNightStitch on Twitter / Instagram and whatnot so we can all stitch together!

Free ‘Alice’s Garden’ Embroidery Pattern for Sew Mama Sew!

IMG_0362

Eeep! Little Dorrit & Co. has shared a new free pattern via Sew Mama Sew! The pattern is called ‘Alice’s Garden’ and illustrates that famous scene from Through The Looking Glass”go download it at the awesome Sew Mama Sew!

The opportunity to work with Sew Mama Sew inspired us to create a little team portrait, Little-Dorrit-&-Co.-style:

We called it ‘pattern-izing’ ourselves (remember when everybody was Simpsons-izing themselves?!) – we’re not even sure how the idea got started, but once it did, we just knew it had to be done. You can see it in action on our Etsy About page, too!

We hope you love the free embroidery pattern!

(P.S. Apparently, we giveth and we taketh away. We’ve decided to renovate our Little Elves Christmas embroidery pattern, adding a color and stitch guide, etc, and put it up in the shop. It is currently free, available to download via the Freebies page – but it won’t be for long! We’ll take it down in about two weeks so feel free to grab it while it’s still there!)
