    Springtime Flowers Pattern

    Aneela Hoey, author of Little Stitches, created this simple (and free!) springtime embroidery pattern. It would look beautiful stitched on a zipper pouch or a child's dress. The bright color palette screams spring, but the floral design would look just as sweet if stitched in colors that whisper spring instead.
