The Love Whale had a big heart. He felt so smitten by every sea creature he met that he wanted to hug them. But every time he tried, the squids would spray ink, the pufferfish would deflate, and the albatrosses would shed their feathers. The Love Whale was too big to hug! After many nights singing his woes to buoys and lighthouses, an idea came to him! With the octopus's help, he painted a large blue heart on his chest. Now, instead of giving hugs, the Love Whale leaps out of the water to show off his big heart to every sea creature he meets.

This charming little embroidery pattern turns my original pen and ink illustration of The Love Whale into a work of art that YOU get to create! I love the idea of creating art for my own home and getting that extra sense of pride when showing it off to guests.

This PDF embroidery pattern is unusual for 2 reasons. #1: It only uses two stitches and for the most part it's simply the 'idiot' stitch - going up and down - which makes it great for beginners. #2: It's complex in design but that’s what makes it such a great gift for experienced sewers. If I can sew it with my notorious sewing history, I believe that anyone can! (Believe me, there's a reason I didn't photograph the back. My grandmother would have fainted at the rat's nests!)

Your "The Love Whale" PDF pattern will include:
A picture of the finished piece
The story behind the artwork
A stitch guide (with a hyperlink to the BEST sewing how-to online - it's also the one that I used to re-learn embroidery)
An easy-to-trace pattern
A reversed transfer pattern for an iron-on pencil
I will email your PDF pattern to you after purchase and you can then print it out and start sewing!
