Embroidery Finish: The Mystery Machine

I finished this a long, long time ago.  I got on an embroidery kick that lasted a good 10 minutes before my first love, quilting, came calling back to me.

I stitched up the Mystery Machine for Scooby Kid.  He sat and watched intently as I stitched.  Actually, all 3 of the boys PLUS my husband were mesmerized.  It was weird...twilight zone weird.
I put some borders on it and made it a pillow.  It now lives on Scooby Kid's bed along with Scooby pillowcases and this quilt

We are so matchy, right? hahaha

I really need another embroidery project but I feel like the Mystery Machine was so fun to stitch I just can't follow it up with something like a flower or a bird.  Any suggestions?


  1. Something Peanuts-related perhaps? :)

  2. I adore this! Scooby-Doo is one of my all time favorites and now my daughter loves him just as much.

    Jennifer :)

  3. You can use any simple image. Coloring books and on-line coloring pages are a great source for patterns.

    A couple of years ago I made a bunch of Loony Toons dish towels for my brother-in-law.

    What do the other kids like?

  4. Cindy: One loves Percy from Thomas & Friends (which would be easy enough...just need to go buy the right colors). I actually got my oldest started on his own embroidery where he drew something out and is now outlining it. You He picked a scene from a Mr. Bean episode. Heaven help him, he will go to second grade impersonating Mr. Bean and nobody will get the joke!

  5. Mary,, that is wonderful... again,, when do you have time? wow...

  6. Oh my word - I love the Mystery Machine! I wish I had the patience for handwork. My friend is on a huge embroidery kick and just got a book from the library called Doodle Stitching. Great stuff in it.
