Little Town Stitching Pattern

When I just stated sewing years ago, I designed this simple stitching pattern that is done with only backstitch, almost like a pencil sketch, and a few small patches of colour. A couple of years ago I stitched my Little Town again, but left it unfinished. I am ready now to turn it into something special, but I need to add a few more touches to it first.

I am still thinking if I want to add some trees (like in the original pattern) or leave it as it is or maybe add some ink stamps. This stage of the creating process always fascinates me. I just love how the final details of each project come together step by step, one inspiring the next one. 

There are no specific instruction for this pattern, but if you decide to use it, your imagination should be your trusted guide at what stitches, colours and details to choose for your own Little Town. This pattern is a tiny touch crooked and that's how I like it to give it that sweet handmade look because nothin is perfect in this world. Happy stitching! Larisa xo


  1. I love this! It has enough "foundation" to get me started. And open enough to add whatever I chose at the time. This is really a wonderful idea. Thank you for sharing!!!

  2. This is very, very sweet and may have to make a version of it when my embroidery group starts up for the year. Xxx

  3. Little towns are the best! Love it!

    I love this pattern, Larisa! I would like to trace it onto similar fabric you`ver seemed to use (using Essex Linen) but really don`t know how to da that. Is there any explanation on your homepage or your youtube canal? I tried finding one but without success..
