I am pleased to announce that I'm a part of a wonderful group of guests posting on Danielle's blog for the next few days.
Check it out and download the pattern!
If you make something with it for your loved one for V-Day share a link here so I can see it :)
Also, Don't forget last year's vintage valentine embroidery patterns I shared.

We have a new niece who is named Olive and her mom has been asking me to design some cute clothing with the theme of olives for her for a while now. Since Valentine's day is less than a month away, I decided she needed an "Olive Ewe" onesie for the holiday and designed this pattern for her.
Keep it in the hoop or frame it to give as an art piece.
Pre-poke your holes with a sharp needle making sure not to poke them any closer than an 1/8th of an inch. I use a t-pin for this because it doesn't hurt my fingers in the process and it makes the right sized hole for the needle I use.
Very carefully use the holes like you would a sewing card. Skip the satin stitch because those stitches have to be made too close together. The trick here is to keep from creasing or tearing your paper. If you've used a thick enough card stock and didn't punch your holes too close together this shouldn't be a problem.
