Free patterns.

Check this one out: I is for Indian.

I have many responses to that one, but oddly think it’s sort of pretty.  I would one day like to see “Indians” outside of the caricature category.  As part of my fellowship at OSU one summer I worked a research project that studied implicit racism-the findings were not surprising, to some degree we associate images of racial groups negatively.  I didn’t follow-up with the rest of the research to see how it panned out.  I’ve been aware of stereotypes since I was a kid (I think many of us are). I still have some personal problems with ethnic mascots yet they continue despite what we know.

The Pattern Bee also has some freebie embroidery pdfs.  I liked this one.

I hope you’re having a wonderful February.
