{day 2 of the festivities!! Free Printable Pattern!!}


It's day two of our party!! I hope you are eating some serious cake!!! 🙂 I am whipping up new Paleo friendly cookies this afternoon to share with you tomorrow, so go ahead and save your sugar points for me for tomorrow! (wait, it's Paleo…no sugar! and you'll love it!)


How about some celebratory embroidery???


I drew up this embroidery pattern for you this week!!

How can we use it?

I like the mini quilt option the best…. 

…but what do you do with a mini quilt??? It unfortunately won't keep you warm – on the outside, anyway!! 🙂


These are just three ideas for uses of mini quilts! As a crafter/quilter, mini quilts can be your saving grace as you are perfecting your craft! Plus, they don't take anywhere near as long as a throw to make!! 

For this embroidery pattern, you can make a medium sized pillow for the bed of the one who has the birthday! Wouldn't it be fun to wake up with a new pillow on your bed??? So fun!!!

What are some other ideas you can do with this embroidery pattern?

  • Fun hoop art
  • pillow
  • table runner
  • birthday tote bag
  • fun twirlie skirt

Lots of fun ideas!!!! 

So here's the pattern: DOWNLOAD HERE

Here are some more shots of how I am going to use my mini quilt…I pinned it to my curtains next to my kitchen table. I can pin it behind the chair of the birthday person! (Right now, it's pinned behind my chair! LOL!!)




Enjoy and be sure to share with us if you use the pattern!!!

    You could use the embroidery design by putting it on to a large sack or bag which becomes a special birthday bag with lots of presents hiding inside.

    sweet, sweet, sweet. I’m in the midst of making a little mini quilt for a friend who decided this year her family should have more fun. Naturally, I am including some bunting across the top–because what’s more fun than bunting?–along with the motto she chose for her crew.
