Hello Crafty Friends! I love creating handmade art for our home – and my children’s rooms are no exception! Last spring, I finished making this vibrant pirate ship by Satsuma Street, one of my favorite Etsy shops for cross stitch patterns. I love how bright and colorful it is! It is part of a gallery wall I’m creating in my son’s book nook.
Since completing this pirate ship, I have been having a hard time deciding on what project to start next – there are so many beautiful patterns, I want to make them all! A constellation embroidery hoop would be a big hit with my space-obsessed kiddos but a pretty rainbow or geometric animal would add a fun pop of color to their room!
I’ve rounded up 32 of my favorite hand sewing patterns that would look amazing in kids’ rooms! They are all available on Etsy, my go-to place for unique hand sewing patterns. I love shopping on Etsy and supporting small business owners. I hope you enjoy this roundup! Have fun checking out these awesome shops!
