I'm all Stitcherpated: A review of The Sublime Stitching Craft Pad ... and my first giveaway!

As though the new Jenny Hart patterns weren't enough last month, the embroidery brilliance and goodness is continuing through to March. I've had a chance to get my stitchy paws on the soon-to-be-released Craft Pad, and it doesn't disappoint.

I've seen images of the Craft Pad for a while now, and was itching to get my hands on it (there's a horse transfer in there that is screaming to be stitched for my horse-crazy daughter). The pad is just that: a fun little pad in a fold over case, with tear away pages. Some have one large image, most have 2-5 smaller images, and there's a mix of old favorite Sublime patterns and some brand spankin' new ones that are drool-worthy.

The new ones that have me all stitcherpated: jellyfish (which feature great little details perfect for french knots, my fave), harps and shamrocks (which will be stitched up soon as a St. Patrick's Day gift for my mom), a chandelier (I'm not even a big chandelier-lover in real life, but seeing the possibility for them in stitch form ... I suddenly want them on EVERYTHING), bugs (praying mantis and flies - not creepy, they're cute!), and an assortment of fun science-y things. And then there are the birds. Oh, the birds! Flamingos, hummingbirds, some cute little love birds (on their own and in a gorgeous full-page, intricate design) - the birds are divine.

I'm always amazed at how inspired I get just seeing a batch of new images from Jenny. They are so fun and playful and beautiful and remind me why I love love love embroidery so much. What I love about the designs in the Craft Pad is that there are the usual assortment of some very simple, fun designs, but there are also a handful of some larger, more intricate ones. The cover design gives a little taste of what you can expect from these larger pieces. They get me excited, because there are all kinds of possibilities for various stitches in these designs. I can't wait to try one.

The pad format is a lot of fun, too. I love pad-based stuff. I think it goes back to my childhood obsession with Mad Libs. Speaking of .... crafty-themed Mad Libs would rock ... I need to make some of those ....

While the pad doesn't have the full stitch instructions like the Sublime Stitching book does (that's a must-have for new embroiderers) it does have great basic transfer and embroidery instructions. I don't know why, but I *still* read the instructions that come in the envelopes of my Sublime Stitching patterns, and I did the same with the Craft Pad. What is it about Jenny's writing that makes me continue to read the instructions when I'm already pretty well-versed in them?

Now that you are dying to get a copy of the Craft Pad for yourself, I'll bring up my very first blog giveaway. I'm so excited - I've been so lucky to receive so many gifts from the blogging community. Not just "things" but great friendships, inspiration and education. I'm so happy to start returning the favor, even in a small way.

So! I have one copy of the yet-to-be-released Sublime Stitching Craft Pad to give away to one lucky commenter. That's right. You can get it before it's even available for purchase (which, by the way, is March 13)

The Rules!
- leave a comment here with what you favorite Sublime Stitching pattern is (so far, 'cause I'm sure you'll have a new fave from the Craft Pad)
- spell out your email address in the comment
- You can enter twice if you put a link on your blog to this book review and leave the link to it in your comment.
- Sadly, I'm short on funds and can't cover international shipping. If you are an international reader and are willing to cover shipping, comment away!
- I'll close comments and pick a winner on Friday, March 7 at midnight Central Standard Time. I'll post the winner on my blog over the weekend.

Enjoy! Can't wait to see what SS patterns are your favorites!

  1. You know, it's a tough call...probably a three-way tie between the kitty in the Stitch-It Kit, the Sushi patterns, and the Chinatown ones. Truly can't decide.

    The new craft pad sounds fabulous! Her patterns are always fun and whimsical.

  23. Thank you so much for the awesome review.. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Jenny's new book!!! :) I love all of her patterns, oldies and new ones, but I'd have to say that my favorite is the "Krazy Kitchen". I've used those transfers more than my other SS patterns, and you can't go wrong with kitchen utensils! :P xoxo, Allie.

  24. Oh I love them all so much! It's like trying to pick your favorite child or ice cream flavor. One of my favorite things I ever made with Sublime patterns was a onesie for my friends little girl. I put a pink lucha libre mask on it and stitched the words "Fantastic" (ala "Nacho Libre"). She adored it!

  78. I absolutely adore the I LUV VEGGIES pack. I just can't help myself. I love all things fruits and veggies, I get so excited over pear and apple printed fabrics, carrot plushies, lemon meringue ribbons. Love them all to death. It's all just fabulous!

    My husband thinks I'm crazy of course, but, but it's an onion! And look at his cute embroidered little frown! -- You know, I don't think I could put the happy faces on the onion, I mean, look at him, he has a face that's just prone to frowning, or maybe grimacing. He can't help it! He's just a little stinker. You would be too if you made people cry all the time through no fault of your own! (Sorry, I had to say it. I was on a roll!)

    Anyway!

  119. My favorite, oh gosh, this is hard! is the Chihuahua series. I have embroidered Chihuahuas on my "everyday" army bag, and I love the little buggers.

  122. The Tiki Freak pattern. It was the first pattern I bought and I promptly embroidered it on a onesie for my nephew---because what other baby is going to have a Tiki onsie? :)

    I am so glad craftzine linked to your blog---I live up in Round Rock and I'm always happy to find crafty Austin bloggers.

  124. Sublime Stitching is not yo mama's stitching! I desperately want to make her a few tea towels w/ krazy kitchen so she'll give her friends something to talk about!

  125. Oh wowsers! What a great contest. I just picked up embroidery because it's such an inexpensive and portable craft. I like the sushi patterns and the Om Sweet Om ones. My email is thienkimlam at hotmail dot com.

  126. I am literally right now ordering Forest Friends, Mitch o'Connell & the gnomes and fairies...Plus I still owe the guy something made with the spaced out designs. If I could look like any girl, I'd want to look like one of the girls from the spaced out set, so I guess that's my favorite!

  128. Rock and roll - the guitar and headphones. I'm expecting #2 and my partner is a guitar playing rock-n-roller, so I've been making a few onesies with these patterns.

  129. I love, love the limited edition run of the Decemberists inspired patterns . . . it inspired me to put some on a corset I made. I also love the day of the dead seris. Who could resist happy little skulls!?

    Thanks!

  131. i know it is probably the most traditional of all her patterns, but i love the swallow with the banner. i've stitched it many many times.

  132. Oh it's so hard to choose! I love the Mitch O'Connell patterns but I haven't used them on anything yet. I also love the Rockabilly Swing pattern. Right now I'm sewing the six guns and the horse shoes on a gingham shirt I bought at the thrift store. So cool!!

  133. I would have to say her Chi-Chi patterns are my very favoite. I adapted the chihuahua to look like my little Papillon Zoe. Added a little fluff here and there to Jenny's existing design, and it's a adorable tribute to "boppsie","noodle","lady","pretty",......My "Zoe". :)
