sample making for penguin and fish

This past month, I stitched up a few samples for Alyssa, the fabric and embroidery pattern designer behind Penguin and Fish.

Alyssa sent me five animals to embroider: a giraffe, an elephant, a lion, an owl, and a hedgehog. I was able to stitch up each of the patterns in one sitting, and I loved the results!

The designs were adorable, and I loved the small details, like the satin-stitched giraffe spots and one-stitch lion's mane.  I'm excited to see what Alyssa does with all of the samples!
