Chibi ladybird girl pattern

To tell you the truth, I didn’t expect to make a ladybird for today’s freebie. I was going to make another runis pattern, like last week, but stumbled upon this amazing felt craft image on Pinterest:

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.

Eat Fruit Be Healthy: vintage poster pattern

I guess the title says it all 🙂 Today’s freebie is an adaptation of a vintage poster promoting healthy food, namely apples and grapes. The image and lettering in it are a great example of negative space.

The pattern is dextremely easy: three colors only. Use off-white or cream canvas for more authentic vintage look.

Today I made two nice and easy bookmark patterns: one with sweet violet flowers and the other with blue snowflakes. And it somehow dawned it me as I was writing that post, that next time I should do Autumn and Spring bookmarks to go with today’s Summer and Winter. 🙂
