Nott the Brave free cross stitch pattern

Today has been a great day: I managed to drop my wiggly toddler (WT) at his grandmothers house and found myself in the rare occasion of having a couple of free hours. At first I was running around trying to get my hands on every unfinished project in sight (lots and lots of those!), but then I felt SO VERY CREATIVE.

This little lady has been haunting me for some time now, especially after I saw her Cat Cosplay version. So today Happy Stitch proudly presents —

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.
