For my card I used an absolutely WONDERFUL new die  set called Cross stitch die and it makes a great textured bg for your images and cards but it is of course also PERFECT to use for embroidering - cross stitching. What is so awesome is that the set also includes dies with pixels and x-s to build your own cross stitched look images from paper - super fun!
The pattern I used for my embroidery I found on pinterest HERE. But there are thousands of great sites with patterns pefect for this sized project. Also remember to serch for beading patterns. My next projec will be to make Minions embroidery for my som from THIS pattern.
