Food Pun Embroidery Patterns

I love puns! Don’t we all love them? I mean, they’re punny, cheesy, and they just make you smile.

So… story time! Why did I create these? I originally made the Donut Worry Be Happy hoop just for fun and because who doesn’t love donuts?! This hoop became very popular, very fast. I hand-embroidered so many hoops with this design for so many customers, pretty soon I couldn’t keep up with the demand! So, I decided to turn it into a pattern so others could make this hoop for themselves!

And so the story continues… I wanted to do something more. Because the donut design was such a hit, I wanted to come up with a series of hoops that could go along with this donut pattern. So what did I do?? I did what every girl does when they need help – I called my mom!

My mom really wanted something she could hang in her kitchen as decor, so we came up with the idea of creating a series of food puns – the perfect kitchen decor and a great conversation starter for visitors.

I wanted to be sure that the hoops I created would be perfect for all levels of embroidery artists, beginners and advanced embroiderers alike, so I made to sure design patterns that would be simple, but cute and punny for everyone to enjoy.

On my quest to create simple, cute, and punny hoops, I created my second food pun hoop: the Squeeze the Day pattern. I love this pattern. I especially love embroidering the actual lemon! The texture is my favorite!

The third food pun hoop I created was a challenge to come up with. After consulting with my instagram followers, I decided to create a cherry pun design. The I Cherryish You pattern is also perfect for beginners. I love the cherries in this pattern. The texture is amazing and they are VERY satisfying to stitch!

Each of these pattern are available for purchase as individual patterns, but you can also purchase a bundle of all 3 patterns for a discounted price. YOU’RE WELCOME 🙂

I love seeing what others create using my designs! Tag @threadunraveled on social media and use the hashtag #threadunraveled so I can see what you create!

Fishbone Stitch

The fishbone stitch can be used in several ways, but it is usually used to embroider leaves.

I love the texture of this stitch. It makes leaves look realistic and dimensional.

Below is a video tutorial for embroidering the fishbone stitch!

I love to use the fishbone stitch in my embroidery patterns! Some of my favorite patterns that use this stitch are the Good Vibes Only and Squeeze The Day embroidery patterns.
