Peppermint Snowflakes



About the Pattern

Whether this is your very first contemporary embroidery project or you’re already a seasoned pro, this pattern will help you stitch up some holiday cheer in no time. This pattern is an excellent introduction to how I approach embroidery, with minimal jargon and highly-detailed, beginner-friendly instructions written as if I am teaching a good friend. As a thank you for all the love and support I’ve received through Stitchery & Co. for my work as a crochet designer, this introductory pattern is specially priced to help those brand-new to embroidery dip their toes in the water.

This 3-inch embroidery design is created with all skill levels in mind and is the perfect fit for absolute beginners interested in learning a range of stitches. This PDF includes two similar yet slightly different snowflake patterns; the step-by-step instructions are provided for the first design, and you will then repeat the steps for the second design.

What's in the pattern?

In this 28-page PDF, you'll find:

  • A detailed supply list, including links to my preferred small businesses that sell the best embroidery hoops and fabrics!
  • A complete list of all DMC thread colors used in this pattern, including color swatches
  • Pattern tips throughout
  • Two black and white traceable patterns
  • Two illustrated color guides
  • 8 pages of illustrated stitch tutorials with written explanations, so that you will learn all the stitches used in this pattern
  • Detailed instructions on how to begin and finish your hoop
  • 7 pages of step-by-step instructions with accompanying photos that teach you how to successfully stitch each hoop

Am I able to sell items I make from this pattern?

No, unlike my crochet patterns, I kindly ask that you do not sell anything you make from this pattern. Do not alter this pattern in any manner and distribute as your own. I strongly (but politely!) request that you give credit to my shop for the pattern and post a link if you share your finished hoop online.

Help! I'm intimidated by embroidery!

First, take a deep breath! Each of my embroidery patterns includes a detailed stitch guide with illustrations and step-by-step instructions so that  you're able to learn each stitch with confidence. (YouTube is also a great teacher if you're a bigger fan of video tutorials!) Remember, if anything ever starts to look a little wonky, you can always use a pair of small embroidery scissors to carefully cut the stitches out and try again! Unlike many other art forms, very little in embroidery is irreversible. Mistakes are always a part of learning, so please do not become discouraged if you find yourself practicing stitches several times before you're happy with the result. (Plus, the more you practice, the better embroiderer you will become!) 

Where can I purchase this pattern?
