I have always enjoyed doodling, so it was only natural that I incorporate that love into embroidery design.
I have been working on several original hand embroidery patterns which I will be sharing with my bloggy friends.
This first pattern is one of my favorites.
Crafty Goddess was created when I could not find anything similar online. I love goddess imagery, and I am a crafty girl :)

My fabulously crafty friend Deana (aka Always Inspired) stitched her up for her partner in the Hoop Up! embroidered quilt square swap on Flickr. She used her partner's choice of colors, and I think it turned out beautifully for her partner's theme of sewing. The metallic threads used for the scissors and needle just pop!
I would love to see your versions of Crafty Goddess, so if you stitch her up, leave a comment or send me a message on Flickr or Craftster.
Crafty Goddess is a free design, but I do ask that you use my patterns for personal use only (that includes for swaps and gifts), and not to sell items made with this pattern, or to offer the pattern for sale in paper or digital format.
If the response to this pattern is positive, I will be posting more hand embroidery designs in the coming weeks, including a Geisha and a Frida Kahlo doll.
