Pirate Pin-Up (Also, Hello World!)
You know, when re-entering the world of craft blogging, it really helps if one can find the hardware necessary to transfer pictures. Le sigh.
While I hunt for my little pink jump drive, have an embroidery pattern!
Because what modern purveyor of embroidery patterns doesn’t have a sexy pirate? There’s a lot of little details on her costume, which I hope will translate into lots and lots of fun stitching.
Nitty gritty time, of course. Click on the picture, and you’ll get the full-res. I release these free bits of line art under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial license.

You are allowed and indeed encouraged to do whatever you want with the piece(s) (use, reuse, abuse, remix, share), just follow these two simple rules:
1) Give me credit (a link back is always appreciated- that way, everyone else knows they can use it too)
2) Don’t make a profit off any use or modification of my work.
To be fair, should you really want to use them in a profit-making venture (ie: stitch it on something you then sell in your etsy store), talk to me and maybe we can work something out so everybody wins. Should you want to say thanks, leave a comment and/or tell a friend or six. Finally, if you do make something, let me know and I’ll happily blog it!
You can find a reminder/introduction to embroidery, including basic stitches and a by-no-means exhaustive list of methods of transferring patterns to fabric in this post (there’s also a good round-up here and another one here). Finally: if you’ve got suggestions for embroidery patterns you’d like to see, I would love to hear them (no promises, though). You can find the rest of my patterns under the Embroidery Patterns category.
