Today we’re excited to spotlight Aimee Ray, owner of Little Dear Etsy shop (charming handmade items and craft patterns) and author of the books Doodle Stitching and Doodle Stitching: The Motif Collection. Visit her website here, and read her blog “Little Dear Tracks” right here! She developed a trio of miniature hand-embroidered ornaments for us, for which the patterns and stitch instructions will be found right in the pages of our Holiday issue. We can’t wait to share them with you (along with our reindeer silhouette cross stitch pattern, also pictured below).
Besides creating handmade pieces and patterns for her Etsy shop and contributing works to other creative publications, Aimee is a dedicated blogger who shares everything from personal and freelance projects to inspiration she’s found across the web, free patterns and projects, tutorials and more. Everything Aimee touches boasts the perfect combination of whimsy and exquisite technique; her unique style shines through in every piece.
Be sure to check out Aimee’s blog for more eye candy. Stay tuned for our next Contributor Spotlight for a sneak peek at another one of our amazing designers!
