Unicorn Girl & The Floss Box

Today I’d like to tell you about one of my favorite websites for embroidery and cross stitch designs, The Floss Box! Emily is the cute creator behind The Floss Box, and I never get tired of looking at all the designs and saying, “AWW!!”

She’s been around for a while, and I remember hearing about her a couple of years ago from my pal Rachel of Average Jane Crafter. If you keep up to date with Rachel, then you’re aware that she’s not only a craft geek, but a space geek. I think Rachel mentioned “The Planets” embroidery patterns, and I remember thinking how cute and clever the entire series of Science embroidery patterns were.

I’m sure a lot of you have been loving and stitching tons of patterns from The Floss Box for a while now. But just in case you’ve never heard of her, I think you’ll like what you see.

She has lots of embroidery and cross stitch designs, and last week this cross stitch design caught my eye on Pinterest.

I quickly bought it after seeing it. But last week, she released the embroidery pattern! Yee-haw! I jumped on that project immediately.  Darcy is pretty much obsessed with unicorns right now, and she was pretty excited. 
The one below is the embroidered version stitched by me.

Darcy insisted on lots of pink and purple for the girl and the unicorn. I love the way it turned out & so does my little Unicorn Girl.

Come back tomorrow for another vintage pattern share, won’t you?




I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this on my blog before, but my 2 year old daughter Darcy is obsessed with dinosaurs. She goes crazy anytime she sees anything about dinosaurs. She has approximately 30 different dino action figures and can correctly identify at least 10 different species. I never imagined my little girl would love dinosaurs this much. She makes our hearts swell with pride.

A few weeks ago I was browsing Etsy, and stumbled upon my new favorite cross stitch designer, andwabisabi. She had a Brontosaurus among her collection, so I bought it for Darcy.

I started this piece last night around 8pm and worked on it for about an hour, then finished it around 10am this morning. So it went pretty quick.

I also bought some cute dinosaur fabric from another Etsy seller, and I’m planning on using that as the main fabric in a quilt for Darcy.

She really goes bonkers for this fabric. When I pulled it out today for the cross stitch photo shoot, she squealed and said, “My dino covers! I just wub it so much!” Then she ran over and started counting all the dinos.

We’re going to be moving to a bigger house (same city) next month, and I’m focusing on these colors and other dino goodies for her room.
