Freebie Elf Stitchette Embroidery Patterns!

Freebies! Tra la la la…

I gave the ever popular redwork a try on these. I really like using a lot of colors when I embroider but I worked on these over Thanksgiving at my parents’ house so it was super easy to just bring one color of floss. I think they look really cute in all red.

We got our snow last night. Hurray! We’ve already been outside once this morning and now Oscar has  pulled his rocking chair over to the front door, parked himself and firmly announced that he’s waiting there til we go outside again. Poor Mom better layer up this time.

  37. Thank you Hilary! You’ve given me the shove I needed to try embroidering a try. My secret fear is that it looks really easy, but will be really hard. I see these on some holiday-themed dishtowels.
    Well, off to buy linen 😉 Thanks again!

  48. Thank you! What a lovely gift.

  49. These are so great, Hillary! Thank you very much. Our snow is lovely, but we didn’t get nearly as much in the city as I anticipated. Today we’re going ice skating to celebrate the new snow.

  66. I love these! Thank you so much for this Christmas present! Happy Holidays!

  67. Oh, great. The day after my little girl requests a Christmas stocking, and I say, no, we’re doing enough getting-ready-for-christmas things, THESE come along. And they’re so gorgeous I will have to do one for my girl, and of course, my little boy will want one…
    Thank you for more Christmas gorgeousness.

  68. Yay, thanks so much for these, they are so lovely. I fear i will have to wait until next year to make them though – so many projects, so little time!

  69. These are adorable, and I love that they are all red.
    So I have a goofy question for anyone out there:
    I remember seeing a needle felted squirrel on someone’s blog (I think) sometime in the last 6 months or so. I can’t find it now and it’s driving me crazy! It was all brown and really plain and natural looking. It’s not the fibertrends one.
    If that sounds familiar to anyone can you comment back to help jog my memory?

  70. Thank you! I can’t wait to try them.

  71. Love ’em – thank you!

  72. For a completely different look, wouldn’t these be pretty done on a red velvet stocking!

  73. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!!!!!!!!!

  74. thanks! so very good! and I love the all red (duh.) and the little toys and shoes are such a nice touch!

  75. Too cute!! Thanks for sharing these!!

  76. Awesome design! I stitched mine on kitchen towels for a quick gift! Thanks 🙂

  77. Dear Hillary,thanks for sharing these two beautiful patterns. I embroidered them side by side and made it into a lovely cushion,here is the pic, I hope you don’t mind that I named it wee wonderfuls cushion:D

  78. It looks really nice and makes me want to learn how to stitch properly!

  79. Here is my flicker tag for stitchettes: I did 4 elves, but I haven’t decided yet how I want to finish them.
    Thanks again! I love them!

  80. oh my GOD. those are so adorable. great work!!

  81. thank you so much for sharing the cuteness. i cant wait to give them a try.

  82. thank you, thank you! I can’t wait to make these. It’s fun to think of all the different variations of these that will be in blogging households everywhere, thanks to your generosity and creativity!

  83. thank you so much for this sweet surprise. these would look great on some cotton kitchen towels – for display only! they take me back to the days when i learned to skate. thank you for jogging good memories, hillary.
    p.s. – stay warm. my friend in chicagoland called to say it was 10 degrees earlier this evening.

  84. Thank you so much for the treat! I had to try something a little different with it. You can take a look over on my new blog, . I will wear it with pure holiday joy. Thanks again.

  85. So adorable.
    Does anyone know where I can find a blank stocking in a light color? I’ve only been able to find red, dark green and dark blue so far. Need help! 🙂

  86. Thanks for the pattern! I used the girl elf as inspiration/guide for a needle-felted stocking. You can see it here:

  87. Hillary, I just retired and now I am sewing and embroidering and being creative again! Thank you for sharing this wonderful design, I love it!
