Pass a Nerd Tutorial

Pass a smile is more like it!! 

The goal of this: 

  • Stitch up a little Nerd. 
  • Add him in a baggie with the supplies for someone else to stitch the same nerd. 
  • Add the below print outs (instructions, pattern and such)
  • Ninja drop it at local craft stores, hospital cancer wards, youth homes, etc. Anyone who could use a smile and some inspiration to stitch. 

I envision these dropped off in all sorts of places. 

My Personal Mission

I plan to do this too! I have some keychains on order and I am going to stitch up maybe 10 or these and I plan to add in the kit to stitch themselves. I will be dropping them at our local Cancer Center for the nurses to give to patients. 

Instructions:

Okay before we get to the printables and pattern part, let’s go over the instructions. I’ve also done a short video below this to explain a little more. 

You can do this one of three ways:

  • Stitch the nerd yourself and just leave them random places for smiles. In this case you would only put in the 2 squares on the right on the printable. 
  • Stitch a nerd and add a kit for them to stitch too. In this case you would put all 4 squares of the printable in. 
  • Just drop the kit around. In this case you could still put all 4 squares in.

Let’s get Nerd-y!

Now once you decide which way you want to go, we need to get to work. 

Firstly, if you are stitching this little guy, you need to stitch him. 

  • You can do him in any color you like, I plan to do variety of colors for my drops. 
  • The amount you do is up to you! 
  • Finish it off – you can do this as a magnet, keychain, bookmark, or however creative way you want! 

Next we will want to print the pages you need to add in. Cutting them along the dotted lines. 

 

Nerd Kits:

Now for our kits for the nerds (the one you will be passing along), you will need the following: 

  • A small piece of cloth (size is dependent on the count you grab)
  • A needle
  • Your printed pages from this tutorial
  • The floss colors — now there are 4 colors and you won’t need a TON for each. I would add in a foot of the white and light pink and two feet of black and dark pink (or whatever color you want your nerd). If you are feeling generous put in a skein of each — the more they have the more times they can make a nerd in my eyes. 
  • Cute little baggies (or simple ziploc bags) with some way to hang them if you plan to hang them in stores or something.
