Princess and the Pea Fairy Tale Hand Embroidery Pattern

I’ve had this idea for a while to do a series of fairy tale hand embroidery patterns, so I’m in the process of creating six different hoops to share.  I think the hoops are turning out even cuter than I imagined.  I love when that happens!  First up in the series is a Princess and the Pea embroidery pattern.  This one is done on two hoops to emphasize how many mattresses there are.  Isn’t it fun?!  It would look so cute in a little girl’s room!  Click here to see all of the hoops in the series.

I used a combination of appliques and different stitches to fill in the mattresses.  If you aren’t sure how to applique, head over to this post.  All of the stitches and colors used are listed on the patterns.  I used this charm pack from Fat Quarter Shop for the fabric appliques.  If you are using different fabric, you’ll want to find floss colors that coordinate with it.

My favorite detail has to be the little french knot pea at the bottom of the stack.  Somehow my children did not know this whole story, so I told it to them as I was stitching.  They know it well now. 🙂

I had so much fun trying out all of these new stitches!  If you aren’t very confident in your embroidery skills, you can just try out some of the simpler stitches, or even just do all fabric appliques.  I promise, it’s all easier than it looks!  Take a look at my “How to Applique By Hand” video.

I love your Fairy Tale embroidery patterns. Thank you so much for sharing. Your how to do a ___ stitch videos are also very informative. It's been decades since I did embroidery, and I'm starting back up now that I'm retired. I have also been teaching my granddaughters. One of them has totally embraced this art and is doing t-shirts, hats, dishtowels, beanies, etc. She said she is obsessed!

Oh, I love that you are sharing with them and using my patterns! My girls are not very patient with it yet, but I hope they'll take it up soon.
