Sweet Stitches

Something Special for Little Girls

JoAnn Connolly is a life-long seamstress and the owner of Garden of Daisies Embroidery. She started her embroidery business thirteen years ago when her daughter's Irish step dancing school needed costumes. Her business has evolved from embroidery and dressmaking to designing, digitizing, teaching, and writing about embroidery. She has had numerous articles published in Designs in Machine Embroidery magazine and will have a regular column beginning in 2013. Jo sells her own original embroidery design files online through OregonPatchWorks.

Little girls have a unique affection for all things pretty, especially when that something pretty is made just for her. And the little girl in your life will giggle with delight when she sees what you've made for her from Sweet Stitches.

Inside this book by JoAnn Connolly, you'll learn to make eight oh-so pretty projects including a name banner for her room, a monogrammed pillow fit for a princess, and an embellished birthday crown for her special day. Watch her eyes light up when you give her the delightful flower headband, and see her jump up and down at the sight of her stylish new pajamas. Each project includes complete step-by-step instructions with photographs and all the embroidery design files you need—including one appliqué alphabet and one stitched alphabet!

Great projects. I made the matushka jacket for my granddaughters that Christmas. They loved them.

I bought this little book several years ago> Lovely projects. It was worth the price!

The Best Best Best book ever

I have 4 granddaughter ages 9 and under and an extra volunteer age 15
They are nuts for all the projects in the book and it has been open nonstop since I got it recently Everything is wowzer to them. I have made almost all the projects. I took the birthday crown and used a Burger King crown as the base, cut apart the spires, glued them on and its fabulous. In addition my stash has coughed up everything from felt to jewels to ribbon. What a winner book!


I had left a review with only one star, and actually I think this was my 1st review I have ever written. I left one star only because I had bought the book with the intention of using the "Sweet Stitches" Frame that is on the front cover. When I opened the "books" file the frame is not the same as on the front cover. I had no means to edit it. Well the author of the book emailed me and said she would be happy to edit it for me. THAT is customer service!!! I am HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!! Thank you Joann!!!
