So cute and I plan to use it on a bag I am making.
Super fun to make! I learned a few new stitches and ended up with a super cute gift to give to a friend.
Such a cute embroidery! The mystery gift was awesome!
Love it. So much fun and such a good beginners introduction to embroidery.
Fabric is too thin
Can’t wait to start this cutey Racoon
I enjoy stitching but haven't done done any for quite some time. This was a perfect project to get back into embroidery. Very easy to follow.
Love it! Thank you! Merry Christmas!
I'm stitching this one up next. I Love it
I think the picture is adorable. I haven’t started it yet, but I can’t wait.
Thank you for sharing. It was truly inspiring.
I loved the pattern and how it was sent
I haven’t started yet but I love the pattern and instructions!
I’m trying to get a group together so that they can all order the pattern and we can do it together!
Live the raccoon. It was fun to learn all the stitches again. It was small and easy to complete. Would recommend as a starter project or a refresher. Such a happy product.
This is an cute way for anyone to learn embroidery stitches and an easy but fun picture for those experienced. Made a nice pillow for my sewing room.
Really enjoyed doing it!!
Love the pattern.
A delight to do and use for beginners.
A great picture I plan to do and hang in my sewing room.
Haven't done much yet . I learned to embroidery at a early age. Decided to do some pillowcases and this is a god refresher for me.
Penguin & Fish makes learning or brushing up on embroidery so easy.
Very nice raccoon pattern. Thank you!
I have not tried this yet but you make all the stitches look easy
Invaluable information. I truly needed this as a refresher. It's been some time since I starting doing embroidery with you. You are a terrific teacher and I'm thrilled for you to see your passion/business grow so much.
All you do is so important to the passing on of skills to others, that otherwise may be lost. Great to watch and see the enthusiasm.
I am new at this tried to transfer to a cloth and did not transfer very upset
I really love the raccoon pattern. It’s so cute!
AS always, easy to download and print this pattern.
This was my very first attempt at embroidery. The stitch guide, tutorials, & online videos helped me feel confident in trying something new. I loved it so much that I ordered the embroidery of the month subscription as soon as I was finished.
I haven't had time to make it but it is cute.
I love the free racoon embroidery pattern. I especially like the examples of certain stitches. Thank you for making this available.
everything was just fine and I loved the ive stitch -a- longs
I enjoyed learning the new stitches that had not used before. The directions were simple and I loved the pattern.
Loved having the chance to practice my stitching!
Enjoyed making this. All instruction where easy to read
I can’t wait to share this with my granddaughter! She’s 10 years old. She loves crafts! The last time I saw her, we made a skirt for her! She was so proud and I thought my heart was going to explode!
She will love this project!!!
Cute design! Easy to finish.
I ordered it, downloaded the pattern and will work on it during the winter. It is sew stinking cute!! Thanks for all you do for us.
I've not yet started this, but plan to kit it up ready to take on holiday soon. It's just the right size, and lovely and simple, so will be very relaxing. I will probably take a couple of other P&F kits as well, and once they are finished will see if I can incorporate them into a quilt.

It was fun to learn all the different stitches and it's cute when done.
I love raccoons and this was so fun to stitch.
enjoy doing it while sitting on my porch watching the birds and squirrels playing in my front yard
This free raccoon sampler PDF pattern is just the incentive I need to finally learn some embroidery stitches. I’m over 60, so it’s never too late! The pattern has everything needed to begin learning with the added bonus of daily emails for 14 days explaining how to execute the stitches. The short videos are great!
I’m grateful to penguinandfish for offering this free pattern and instruction to get me started!
The pattern is so cute. The sampler is a great way to try out a variety of stitches. The video links is an added bonus.
This is the firt pattern I've seen and I had no idea of what I was missing! I specially loved the fourteen detailed instructions with pictures I received acommpanying the journey!
Such an adorable and cheerful design with simple stitches to practice and learn.
I'm using this pattern to teach my grandchildren to embroider. The videos are great tools, too.
I love the quality of the fabric and designs and especially the embroidery hoops!!
I love all of the Penguin and Fish embroidery designs! I have Alyssa on my iPad for company while I’m stitching. It’s like sewing with a friend I recommend watching Penguin and Fish on YouTube!
quality product and fun !!
Very well done with a video a day for each stitch.
I love how clear the patterns are and doable for all levels beginner to experienced. Room to play and make it your own. I love the YT videos. So informative and interactive
Such a well done special little sewing project. Very detailed instructions and an adorable pattern. Truly generous of you to gift us this embroidery project. Hope there will be more!
I haven’t even started it yet as I found one of your kits that I started and would love to finish before I start anything else. The kit is “Bee Kind” goes really well with the one I worked on when I was losing my dad and needed some busywork. I promise Rocky Racoon Stitch Sampler will be the next one I do. I am looking forward to it very much.
Nice project good service
Love the pattern and can’t wait to stitch it!
It's such a cute pattern! and a great way to learn (or refresh my memory on) the different embroidery stitches used. I'm enjoying working on this racoon
I Love This Project. It is really super like the sewing hedgehog !! They both make me feel like rolling over with Laughter, You sure can convey lots of joy with just several lines and color. I'd buy all your patterns if I could afford them!! Thank you .
French knots have always been hard getting to practice them with him amazing! The pattern is adorable and so cute! I loved getting the videos to help me through each stitch

This was one of the funnest patterns to stitch along with!! The raccoon is adorable and each stitch is amazing I learned a couple new stitches. Thank you so much for all your free patterns as well as all your tutorials. They are so pleasant and helpful not eveyone can purchase patterns so we appreciate the free ones so much you have no idea. Blessings
I have not started this embroidery project yet but I know it will be a fun stitch.
Always love free stuff! A nice little surprise! I am going to make 2 quilt blocks with this. One with the raccoon and the the second one will be like a little stitch sampler.
Absolutely darling! Making a needlebook for my very young granddaughter who is just learning embroidery!
Thank you for the challenging flower Alyssa. :+) I had to practice a couple of times before I was sure I got it. XOXO
Cute little fella. Haven't had time to stitch it yet.
Love P&F on YouTube
Items are ALWAYS top quality, delivered quickly, exactly as ordered (sometimes a little surprise) and wrapped in adorable packaging. Best customer service EVER!
It has been more than 40 years ago that I last did quite a lot of embroidery. Only cross-stitch. I love to see embroidery and have hanging around me some beautiful pieces i inherited. I see the labour, love and leisure time in it. Since 5 years I watch YouTube, mainly for quilting, but also other handicrafts. My whole live I have this embroidery hoop in my vicinity and never used it. And I have some tablecloth with free stitchery. Then Alyssa's funny, happy Raccoon came along, with the workshop. That was it, all the ingrediënts were there and I took off.
So far I like all the stitches, except the Splitstitch. Can you see!? I have got the floss above the jumper. But, omg, I missed the one red stitch of the jumper. The day I started a YT Lady suggested using a double cloth when using the hoop and I think it is a success.
Enough writing, back to stitching.

It was every easy and I brushed up on my stitch's. My granddaughters thought it was cool and that's enough for me
Another wonderful pattern from Alyssa Thomas of Penguin and Fish! This pattern comes with very helpful, quick stitch tutorials. All of the patterns from Penguin and Fish are so sweet and playful. I love stitching along with Alyssa's lives on Facebook and YouTube. Highly Recommend!!!
Like all your fun design's this one is great and fun to do. I plan to put this one on my hand sewing bag.
So much fun and I appreciate the daily "stitch helpers." Looking forward to next project!
Loved stitching Raccoon, I have already posted photo of Raccoon on P&F Crafters, with lots of Likes and positive feedback.
