Embroider the Saints

As many of you know, my daughter is named for St. Therese, so I'm really excited about her feast day being right around the corner! I wanted to show you all this adorable St. Therese doll that Violet's Godmother made her for her baptism.
Isn't it the sweetest little thing? She also embroidered Violet's name and baptism date on the back.

First she embroidered St. Therese's outline, then
cross stitched it in. Here it is before it was cross stitched:

I thought this was such an amazing and meaningful baptism gift, and I know it is something for Violet to cherish. I love the fabric rose embellishments that St. Therese is holding!

This doll was based on Charlotte's embroidery pattern, and you can print your own Saint Embroidery Patterns from Waltzing Matilda for free! Isn't Charlotte great to post all the printable Catholic stuff she does? She has many saint patterns available including St. Michael, St. Clare, St. Francis of Assisi, and Mother Teresa to name a few!

Here are some things I've seen other bloggers do with these Saint Embroidery Patterns:

Yes, this is a little Saint Dress!
Found this over on A Pew All Our Own.

Here's a St. Cecilia doll from Running with Perseverance.

A Pew All Our Own also made a St. Genevive and a St. Clare
doll for Easter baskets and embroidered prayers on the backs.

And I love LoVE LOVE this Saint quilt from 
Knit Together Designs! :-)

*Updated to Add this aborable Mother Teresa doll
from Joyfilled Family! I just want to hug her! :-)

If you start embroidering now you might have them ready to come marching in for All Saint's Day. God bless!
