Freebie to Make for a Child Learning the Alphabet

Alphabet Bubbles ~ 2012

Stitch something quick and fun to challenge a little one learning the alphabet.  It’s a kind of a  Where’s Waldo for letters.  Bubbles pop against a blue sky background and hide the alphabet, but they don’t make it too difficult to find all 26 letters … plus a few punctuation marks.  The design is free for your personal use only, and under my copyright. 

  Happy Stitching!

ABOUT ME: Catholic, Wife, Mom, Artist, Researcher, Baker, Cat- Herder, New Englander. I love designing needlework, especially samplers with specialty stitches, applique & quilting, painting, photographing, reading, writing, baking, fabric and floss collecting. ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE COLORS: bluish-purples and greens. ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE ANIMALS: Cats ~ you don't have to walk them, and they purr. I've also loved my share of dogs. ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE MUSIC: Instrumental ~ flute, piano, Smetana's Moldau ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE MOVIES: Pride & Prejudice with Ehle and Firth. No other versions need apply.

Stitch or paint in beautiful light. Talk in bed with my husband late at night and then go for an early breakfast... ie, have his total undivided attention, and luxuriate in it. Talk with our son without cell phones, ipods, etc at a family meal. Go to lunch with a friend and laugh till our sides hurt. Browse in a good library or bookstore. Go to the theater when both the play and the seats are good. Stay home and do absolutely nothing.

  1. Hi Remy,
    I’m Susanne aus LU, group mom of yahoo group “Sticklounge” and I’d like to ask if you’d give us the permission to stitch another of your designs in our group. You generously gave us the permission to stitch “Hommage to Japan” and so many group members loved it. I think the designs Outstanding in Orange/Amazing in Aqua, Irish coffee and strawberry border sampler would meet the taste of our group members best. Would you give us the permission to stitch one of these samplers? Thank you for reading, best wishes, Susanne aus LU

    • Hi Susanne,
      Yes, I’m delighted that your group would like to stitch some of my designs! My restriction is only that they be for personal use, and nothing commercial. I’d love to see pictures of some of the finished pieces that I could post on the blog.
      Happy Stitching!
