Survivor (Stroke) Ornament {4×4}



Are you, or someone you dearly love, a stroke survivor? I had the honor of being asked about a possible embroidery design for a friend to create for her fellow stroke and TBI survivors after she experienced a stroke in March 2023. Ever the caring person, she wanted to gift them with something to celebrate how far they have come. I started looking around for ideas and to see if something already existed. The result is this beautiful new Survivor (Stroke) Ornament with a butterly emerging from the brain. This design signifies the rebirth and renewal after a stroke. The learning to write again, walk again, talk again. All the things taken for granted by us each day, now a difficult task. Celebrate the triumph with this lovely keepsake.

The design allows you to skip steps to give each ornament a unique look. The body of the butterfly can be embroidered in a different color than the outline. Make it your own and embroider this design in a variety of colors!

If you have software and a larger hoop, you can combine multiples into one hooping.

Size: 4×4 | 3.25″ w x 3.75″ h | 4,629 stitches


Sample photos: embroidered by GeminiRed Creatons. For my samples I used wool felt from Benzie Design. This design was created in collaboration with Corena at Bella Bleu Embroidery.

Proceeds from the sale of this design will go to the Grady Stroke Center in Atlanta, GA. Please help me support a great cause by purchasing this design and sharing the link so others can purchase it as well. Finished ornaments can be ordered through my shop GeminiRed Creations.
