New is fun, isn't it? We seem to absolutely crave whatever is the latest and greatest - well, here's the best place to satisfy that craving for all things petite and wonderful from Erica Michaels.

Click on the title or image to view a larger photo, a list of supplies and a suggested recommendation for the level of stitching expertise. Most designs will fall into an easy-to-intermediate category because these are so doable for most anyone.
 However, some are ideally suited to beginners and others are for the more experienced stitcher. Remember, we all stitch for pleasure - I hope this will help you make your decision about your next project easier.

When the next new designs are posted here, you can still find all of the current designs on the Petites page for easy reference.


Visit our new TADSAW page Erica Michaels is proud to support the Train a Dog -- Save a Warrior (TADSAW) program. For any of the patriotic/Americana-themed designs (including both petites and cross stitch), a portion of the proceeds is donated directly to TADSAW. What a great way to support returning soldiers and veterans -- and help shelter dogs!

NEW - November 2018


THE CAROLING BERRIESO Joy to the World THE CAROLING BERRIESO Star of Wonder The Caroling Berries
This series of eight linen berries features favorite and classic Christmas carols. Each chartpak also includes a "squared-up" version of the berry design if you prefer that – shown here in a different color palette.

Both versions are monochromatic so you can select your favorite combination of fabric/thread/trims.


Defining the Seasons Defining the Seasons Defining the Seasons
This seasonal series describes, in words and images, various ideas and details that come to mind throughout the year. The primary design is stitched on silk gauze with colorful blocks and words on a tonal background of subtle details and the months from the calendar. An additional piece using the large letter blocks is finished as a pretty cushion.



NEW - September 2018


THE CAROLING BERRIESO Jingle Bells THE CAROLING BERRIESO Silent Night The Caroling Berries
This series of eight linen berries features favorite and classic Christmas carols. Each chartpak also includes a "squared-up" version of the berry design if you prefer that – shown here in a different color palette.

Both versions are monochromatic so you can select your favorite combination of fabric/thread/trims.
The full series will be complete in November 2018.


Prince of Peace Prince of Peace Prince of Peace
This elegant piece is inspired by Isaiah 9:6 and the much loved Handel’s Messiah, For Unto Us a Child is Born.

Pretty gold motifs accent the text of the verse, and additional motifs are stitched in the background providing subtle and tonal detail there. My model is stitched on silk gauze, but you should select your favorite fabric – any pretty cream neutral should do nicely.

There are also three additional charts (shown stitched on linen) which make pretty smalls and/or ornaments.

Jolly Soul

Jolly Soul
This bright and happy piece is a perfect ornament for the holidays.

Shown finished as an ornament in a mini-frame and also a more muted/prim style cushion.

Take your pick and enjoy a jolly holiday!
