A fun book for stitching patterns is Doodle Stitchery by Aimee Ray.

There are many projects and the patterns are simple and adorable.

There are projects like a happy birthday banner

and also hoop framed embroidery art. You can mix and match the patterns

to create your own gift cards, wooden charms and anything else you can stitch onto.

I have stitched a few of the patterns and have been happy with the results.

This is the Chinese Lantern from the ‘Asian Chic’ pages.

 This tree pattern has a little bit of all of the seasons.

Aimee Ray is an illustrator and her drawings are very sweet – check out her blog here.
