My daughter stitched (and colored) this awesome rainbow version of the car.
This is a great pattern for beginners. It’s super easy – just a bunch of backstitching and one lone French knot – which you can replace with a tiny straight stitch. It's so easy a kid could do it. In fact - my daughter stitched and colored the sample image!

She colored the image in with colored pencils before stitching, but you could certainly fill with the fancy stitch of your choice.

Enjoy this free pattern! If you’ve never tried embroidery, this is a really easy project to start with.

Please feel free to enlarge or reduce the pattern to any size you like. But remember - if you're using the stitch guide below you'll want to use more strands of thread on a pattern made larger, and fewer strands if you reduce the size of the pattern. Happy stitching!
Materials you'll need:
• Fabric to be embroidered
• Your favorite tools for transferring the pattern • Embroidery needle
• Embroidery thread
• Embroidery hoop

    Step 1

    As with any embroidery pattern - you decide what stitches and colors you want to use. If you want to duplicate exactly what you see on the cover, here's the info you need.
    Car - backstitch with 4 strands of DMC #311
    Tires and tailpipe - backstitch with 4 strands of DMC #310 Exhaust cloud - backstitch with 4 strands of DMC #317 Bird eye - French knot with 2 strands of DMC #3371
    Bird - backstitch with 4 strands of DMC #166
    Hat - backstitch with 4 strands of DMC #801
    Bird beak - backstitch with 4 strands of DMC #900
    I used Prismacolor colored pencils for the coloring.
    This is a great project to do with kids - even kids who aren't ready to stitch yet. You can transfer the pattern (or one of their drawings) to the fabric and stabilize it with feezer paper. Let the expert color it in (I recommend crayons for kids) and then you stitch the outline. Easy peasy - and so much fun!
    Happy stitching!
