So this is my second month whipping up a few stitch cards so the littles can easily learn embroidery. I think it’s great for hand eye coordination and I absolutely love it now and did just as much as a child.

Since February is actually cold most places (I have my windows open and I’m slightly over-warm as it’s 78 out right now while I am typing this) I decided to get in on all of the cold weather goodness with a mitten, hot chocolate, snowflake and a pine tree. I hope the kids enjoy these cards. As a reminder, post to my wall on Facebook or tag @dreamalittlebiggerblog on Instagram the finished cards so I can enjoy your little’s work!

For this project you will need:

  • thread or yarn
  • tapestry or yarn needles
  • hole punch standard or small OR a large, pointy tapestry needle

Now this is how I suggested that you make your holes last month when I shared the shapes stitch cards. (Weren’t they so cute?) But as luck would have it my punch didn’t last through the first of my newest set of stitch cards. It was giving me trouble with the punch part sticking pretty badly toward the end of my shape cards but I thought it was just me because I did them very late and I was very tired. But the first go a few weeks later and POP! went the inside and it no longer works unless you want to count it as an exceptionally quiet rattle. Bah.

Rather than go buy another one, because, quite frankly, the quality isn’t worth the hard earned money of any of us, I used a big ol’ upholstery needle that was super pointy to make the holes. NOW, that means the back edge is kind of raggedy and the actually stitching looks messier because of it but it was free so that’s the way I went. If you’re planning on doing lots of these cards for the kiddos, I’d  highly recommend getting a reputable small hole punch because it truly makes them so much nicer. Know of a good one you’d like to recommend? Shout out in the comments below iffin’ you don’t mind!

Follow along the dots to make holes to stitch. If you have a more advanced stitcher, feel free to make additional holes around some of the features as I did. I don’t want to brag but I’ve got quite a few embroidery hours under my belt :) :)

    Your designs here are so cute Allison! As always, your creativity never ceases to amaze me!

    And so lucky you are to have temperatures near 80 in February! I’ve heard that a lot of southern states are experiencing unusually warm temperatures in February. Not quite so here in the north. What’s our temperature you ask? Just take the 8 out of 80 and see what you have. ;) It’s deep freeze central here and a warm up is still quite a ways away.

    Enjoy!!! :)
