Gift tags! This was Philip's idea, and I've provided a variety of formats to print out, colour if you like, cut out and attach to your parcel. There's a traditional woodcut Sea Monkey and a more cheeky line drawing Sea Monkey. Hope you like them! Download the PDF here.
It's been fabulous seeing photos of people's Stitched Sea Monkeys come scampering in!

You can download the stitching pattern (designed by my studio mate, Ms Deadly Knitshade) here on my website.
Hey, if you wanted, you could even draw your own Sea Monkey giftwrap! Or take some time on Boxing Day with the recipient of your Stitched Sea Monkey, drawing its portrait. Here's a little tutorial video, How to Draw a Sea Monkey!
