The design is adorable, and the kit comes with everything you need. This is a great second project for me after having taught myself stitches to make a sampler. It’s really helping me figure out which stitches give which effects. -Kathleen Bell

This complete embroidery kit gives you everything you need--even if you're brand new to embroidery.

"Catnap" is a stitched story of cats and naps and dreams and cozy spots. You'll master 11 classic embroidery stitches as you render curved bedposts, a crazy quilt, lazy-daisy wallpaper--and a cat curled up on patterned pillows. You'll love displaying or gifting the finished project.

  • Cotton fabric with design pre-printed in color
  • 7 full skeins of coordinated DMC Embroidery Floss
  • 2 embroidery needles
  • 5.5" tin for organizing your supplies
  • Easy-to-follow illustrated instructions

This embroidery pattern and kit is designed by Debbie Hodge and is for your personal use only. Patterns may not be reproduced or shared. 2021 Debbie Hodge, Stitched Stories.

THIS HOOP'S STORY

Cats and naps (and dreams and getting cozy) are highlighted here. Do you nap and where? Have there been times in your life when you’ve been more of a napper? And what’s your favorite cozy spot? This black cat is snuggled into pillows atop a crazy quilt. OR is the quilt actually a field of flowers in the cat’s dream? Let the edges of reality and dreams merge as you stitch this scene.

Every Stitched Stories kit includes a variety of stitches and motifs. There are small scenes you can complete in a sitting, all of them coming together in the finished project. Immerse yourself in the imagery, color, and classic embroidery stitches. Recall your life’s past stories and consider the new ones possible. 

FAQs

Can I do this if I've never embroidered?

Yes. All the instructions you'll need are included. If you've never handled a needle and thread, it might take a while to get comfortable. Take your time, keep your thread length under 18", and just be sure you're not tangling things and that you're pulling the thread all the way through. Once you've got this rhythm established with simple straight stitches, you can keep adding to the stitches you've mastered. The stitching guides actually tell you which stitches to start with on a design if you're new to embroidery.

What can I do with my finished project?

You can finish it in the hoop and hang it or get a frame with a circular cutout and glass cover. My favorite thing to do is to finish the design in a nicer hoop and then display on plate stand or small easel. I add it to styled vignettes around my house.

Will the printed pattern wash out?

No. You may wash your finished project but the printed design will not wash away.

What's the difference between kits and fabric prints?

The kits include not only the fabric print but also floss, needles, a storage tin, and hoop. The fabric prints include just the fabric print and the stitching guide. You will need to supply hoop, needles, and floss.

To be honest....I haven’t started it yet. I wanted it so ordered it and I’d be ready. But I have things to clean up and do first. But I know I’m going to love it! I think I’ll personalize it to look like our cat. That’s his favorite place to be!

Cat Nap has stolen my ♥️

🐈 💤 Cat Nap is a beautifully done embroidery stitch just waiting for you to hoop it up and explore the possibilities!!! I purchased the kit (and it had the ‘extra’ embellishment threads) which I used to stitch the headboard and wooden bed posts. The kit comes with everything that you’ll need: needles, hoop, floss, fabric, a stinking cute needle minder and a beautifully illustrated and detailed stitch guide (plus a little tin to store your notions in) You cannot go wrong with this kit. Also, make sure to check out Stitched Stories videos on Facebook.
