Becky Stern’s Cat Patches

It’s been a while since we shared something from Becky Stern, so it’s nice to be remedying that! Becky is one of the smartest people in the world of stitch and she contacted me recently with this great tutorial on making patches from photo sources. Her project is tinged with sadness as it’s an homage to her cat, Beatrice, who recently passed away.
