Here at Embroider Buddy®, we’re always meeting with other creative minds about embroidery projects, ideas and solutions. From bloggers, to groups, to small and big businesses, it’s wonderful to connect with other embroiderers. Recently, our interest was sparked by Embroidery SoupTM, an embroidery design site headed up by Sarah Straughn. Many of Sarah’s designs have been featured on industry magazine covers and she's won numerous awards for her design and digitizing skills.


So, we took the opportunity to partner with Embroidery SoupTM to design and digitize exclusive embroidery charms that are available free with the purchase of Embroider Buddy® stuffed animals. These beautiful charms are another way to make it even easier to add a little flair and creativity to your next Embroider Buddy® project.

In addition to these designs, other free designs will be available, such as the “You Are My Sunshine” and “Nite Nite” designs that aren’t specific to an Embroider Buddy® stuffed animal.

Check back regularly, even after you’ve downloaded the companion charm, as you may be surprised to see even more charm designs!
