Miraculous Medal Embroidery Pattern (and other resources!)


After sharing this Miraculous Medal inspired embroidery project (which was part of my Through the Year with Mary giveaways), lots of people asked about offering a pattern. I am a make-it-up-as-I-go embroiderer, and also a very-very-rudimentary-pattern-maker, but I have it ready to share with you today! The pattern contains a color photos of my hoop, a supply list, suggested steps, a key to the stitches I used, patterns to print and trace, and a few ideas for other options when using the design.

If you aren't familiar with basic embroidery stitches (I often use the straight stitch, backstitch, lazy daisy, spiderweb roses, satin stitch, and French knots) I totally recommend watching youtube videos to get the hang of them.  The beauty of this pattern is that you can make it your own, with your unique style, colors, and details.

If you decide to make your own Miraculous Medal embroidery, I'd love to see it!  Email me at looktohimandberadiant (at) gmail (dot) com, or if you post it on Instagram tag me @katherine.bogner and use #miraculousmedalembroidery.  I can't wait to see what you create!

P.S.- If you love the Miraculous Medal like I do, you might be interested in the resources that the Association of the Miraculous Medal offers. In addition to other items available in their online gift shop, they send free Miraculous Medals out around the globe! They sent me a generous box with resources for all of my students, including cards with a blessed Miraculous Medal attached (top) and the Marian easel (right). I used the Miraculous Medal reflection from my book Through the Year with Mary (affiliate link) for the lesson in my classroom before I gave out the medals! It was the perfect summary and also helped introduce/review the purpose and use of sacramentals. The coloring page I found here. If you'd like to get your own Miraculous Medals for your family or students, you can order up to 25 on their website, or can call 1.800.264.6279 for more than 25. My students were thrilled to have their own, and I was so happy to be able to share this devotion with them!

P.P.S.- If you are looking for more embroidery ideas, I also have a free pattern for the Holy Family Hearts available here:

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
