    Maybe it's Needlepunch. Where you punch the heavy yarn or wool fabric strip up and down to fill in the pattern.

    I agree with Ninnie, it looks as if embroidery stitches have been used, i.e. stem stitch, lazy daisy stitch, chain stitch. A good book on general embroidery stitches would help you, then you can choose which stitch to do where, and just follow the lines. As for the design, this one is what I would describe as perhaps naive, but you could embroider any design with simple shapes, in the same manner. Children's colouring books are quite a good source for the animals you mentioned. You can buy templates for heart shapes for the Love ones. Perhaps a library might be able to help you with some of the other ideas you mentioned. I hope that helps.

    I found a lovely site called cedarberrystitches.com that has patterns for "primitive" stitching, which looks just like what you are asking about. I don't have any patterns for that, but some of them look fun.

    Now that I can see what you are talking about I agree looks like hand embroidery, using different stitches.

    There are several sites that offer free monthly patterns for this. here are a few
    www.gailpandesigns has a monthly pattern for A Christmas Wish.
    bunnyhilldesigns has a cute basket stitchery
    capriconquilts.blogspot has a real cute one called Quilters Blessings.
    birdbraindesigns.net has some tea towels
    There are lots more but right now my mind is blank. I will think of them and come back.

    I looked at one of the downloads from the site zennia provided...it's embroidery. here's an excerpt from the download...

    "The Stitchery:
    Stitches used are: backstitch (BS), satin stitch (SS), running stitch (RS), lazy daisy (LD), cross stitch (CS)
    and French knots (FN). Numbers below correspond to DMC Stranded Embroidery threads I used. Use two
    strands of Embroidery thread unless otherwise stated."

    I think it's just a case of one thing called by two names. You can find a lot of free samples too download on the internet...just google free primitive embroidery or free embroidery patterns.
