Free Christmas Reindeer Tote Bag Pattern

Inspiration can come from all sorts of  places, from the obvious to the less so.  Below is my latest work in progress – a Little Red Riding Hood embroidery design for the January issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine ….

Little Red Riding Hood

No prizes for guessing who was the model – and inspiration – for the “not-very-scary-woof ” sorry, WOLF!  But inspiration also can be found in all sorts of strange and much less obvious places….  Rosie sent me a picture of her Christmas manicure…..


And I thought …. “I love the clean, simple shape of that reindeer head.”  Then I thought…… “he would look great as a machine embroidery/applique project!”

So now I am proud to present to you my next Bustle & Sew Christmas gift ……

I think “you know who” made the perfect model for the “not-very-scary”, foot stomp’in woof! I really like what I see so far and I’m looking forward to seeing the project complete.
I love the reindeer too, very cute! Thanks! 🙂
