This item is super cute and I received it in a well packaged envelope in a timely manner. I also purchased the class that she designed to go with it. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend the class. This item is nice, so I gave it four stars. However, as far as the actual item I have a bit that I feel could be improved. The size of each square is fine but there is so little fabric on the outer edges that I cannot hoop this fabric very well. The lines are not all inside even the smallest hoop, the top & bottom of the squares can be hard as the fabric slips out. I have heard this can be remedied but I don't know how. Second, as adorable as I find the rainbow colored designs, the lines do show under my thread. Lastly this is a very thin fabric so I have had to be careful of how I sew. That aside I would definitely purchase again.

This is a great, well designed and presented pattern. She includes many transfer method ideas, as well as detailed color charts (dmc numbers too!) and a reversed imaged for transfer along with a standard. There is even a small stitch guide with photos! I cannot wait to stitch pattern. I will definitely be purchasing more from MinatureRhino.

About

Stitch by stitch...

***So very excited to announce my new book, Stitched Gifts, an embroidery craft book published by Chronicle. Please read all about it here: http://bit.ly/NdQIs6 ***

It all started with a little stitched heart made on an airplane trip from New York to California. I had no gift for my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary, so during that five hour flight I embroidered their names, Helen and Lito, into an arrow pierced heart. My grandmother always preferred a handmade gift and treasured them; cards were all kept in boxes, notes on the fridge, my lopsided birdhouses hung in the backyard, and my heart nestled among her saint figurines and reliquaries.

On a whim, I shared this piece in my shop and received a great response. Since then I've been stitching up custom pieces for weddings, anniversaries, new babies, birthdays, and just because. Everyday, just about, you can find me stitching in my Brooklyn studio (aka the spare bedroom). Now, I teach embroidery classes and share fun, easy kits in my shop too.

If I'm not stitching, I'm up to some creative endeavor or another. I also make stationery, books, and dabble in all sorts of media. Making excites me, and being able to share the things I make with you is a great gift.
