All 5 geoemtric animal embroidery patterns are now available as a bundle. The patterns are very simple to do and beginner friendly. But what to do with so many patterns? Hanging embroidered pictures on the walls is not for everybody, so embellish the back of a nice shirt, embroider a cloth bag, a sports bag or the old-fashioned cushion cover. There are so many possibilities! Jana shared a beautiful example of how to apply embroidery to everyday objects here, take a look :)

Brand new in the beastiarium of hand puppets - the FROG. Flicking through old photos I found this one - it's one of my oldest hand puppet designs and one of my favorites, too. Look at these eyes! So cute. Better late than never. Now you can make your own frog hand puppet, too. Knit a golden ball for this and it's ready to go for a frog king puppet theater.

Continueing the geometric animals series, here comes the rabbit - or easter bunny. This one is a really really fast embroidery project. Like the others it's stitched in running stitch using pearl cotton and then threaded on the outline, nose and eyes.
I could imagine this for easter decoration but in a kid's room, too. So much bunny literature out there to match the theme.
Here are the rabbit's geometric pals:
Here comes a new embroidery pattern: the geometric bear. Like the geometric lion it's worked in running stitch and threaded running stitch in perle cotton. It's the perfect beginner project - fast and easy to do!
My only (!!!) new years resolution was to create a new hand puppet every single week of 2012. Whenever it's possible I will publish the pattern for these puppets, too, but I think it won't be manageable every week.
After mind storming a huge list of animals suitable as a hand puppet I recognized 52 puppets are not enough. If I like hand puppets anymore after this project, there will be more in the future definitely! Since there are so many of them I try to sort them per month, so every month has its own theme.
And because 52 hand puppets are not enough work, I also want to use many many many new techniques I never used whether they were intimidating, exhausting or I simply never knew they were existing. It's quite intimidating to use a totally new technique on a bigger project like sweaters, jackets or even bags, but......
