And here is what appeared miraculously in my Pattern Maker: a chibi kawaii-style girl in a ladybird costume. The pattern is small and extremely easy, it can be stitched by kids or beginners. It can also be used to make a postcard or on a pincushion.
If you spent some time here on my blog, you definitely know my favourite animal. Yes, I love cats. And that is exactly the line that I put on the cross stitch sampler pattern that is going to become my second project for the Punk Projects Craft Challenge.
The pattern (as most of my cross stitch patterns here) is absolutely free. Scroll down to download full pattern in printable PDF format.

Hey everybody! today’s free pattern is an Easter biscornu with bunnies holding Easted eggs. You can stitch it as is (in one color) or choose your own colors. In any case, feel free to send me a photo of your finished project, and I will gladly feature it here in this blog! 🙂

Once again – a bookmark based on Hayao Miyazaki‘s character (following Totoro bookmark made last week). Today it is the black cat Jiji from the animated movie “Kiki’s delivery service”, that tells the story of a young wanna-be witch Kiki, who earns her living making deliveries by broomstick.
Today I made for you a pair of very simple patterns with cheerful yellow butterflies and little blue campanulas. The patterns are a combination of full cross stitches and backstitch lining and should be very simple to stitch.
Butterflies bookmark Pattern size: 29 x 87 stitches, 9 colors
Today I’ve looked through loads of photos, but decided to make a pattern based on my own drawing (again: previously I made the Turtle Island, Maneki-neko and the jazz cat with bass). It will again be a cat, probably because somewhere inside of me is a crazy cat lady dying to get out.
This pattern, as well as the source picture, is heavily inspired by the art from the Book of Kells. The artwork and illumination of this medieval manuscript is fantastic! I strongly recommend to look it up on Google (or to visit Dublin’s Trinity College, where it is displayed).
