Welcome to the Rabbit & Rocket Mini Pattern of the Day!

Today’s Pattern: The Ohio Carnation

Black and white line art drawing of a carnation.

Button with words Download Image.

This image can be embroidered, thread painted or punch needle embroidered (with a single DMC thread and very small punch needle) with any colors you like.

IDEAS

You can choose to thread paint the petals using variations of your favorite color. Make a larger bouquet using multiples of the pattern on a larger piece of fabric. Finish as a pillow or a pin cushion (ouch!). Satin stitch with stabilizer attached to the back and and turn into a patch you can sew to a jacket or jeans! Or simply display in a very small hoop or frame.  Have FUN!

The image is 3 inches square – all of our daily minis are no more than 3 inches so you *may* be able to complete in a day. We recommend using a piece of fabric at least 5-inches square in at least a 4-inch hoop. If you have to go bigger or smaller, no problem!

INSTRUCTIONS

To copy the image onto fabric, simply do the following:

  1. Right-click on the image above to save it to your computer.
  2. Print out the image onto regular paper. The image will be small and centered in the middle of your 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.
  3. Pin or tape the paper to the fabric you’ll be stitching on.
  4. Tape the combined paper and fabric to a light-filled window so you can see the pattern through the fabric. (Or use a lightbox if you have one!)
  5. Lightly trace the image onto your fabric – you can use a regular pencil or one made for marking fabric that will disappear with heat or water.
  6. Remove the paper, hoop your fabric and start stitching!
