Tuesday freebie: a folk-style flower

Today’s free pattern is a simple folk-style flower that is adapted from a vintage painting that I found on Pinterest.  The size of the pattern makes it great to use for a 10 x 15 cm postcard (4 ” x 6 ”).

Summer days at the sea

On my holidays I love going to the seaside! I love the feeling of sand under my feet, the bright colors, the seashells and even the salty smell (especially that). So here are three patterns that try to capture that mood, three, because stopping at one was practically impossible 🙂

A Day at the Sea (versions 1, 2, and 3)

Folk art flower cross stitch bookmark pattern

A couple of weeks ago I posted a poll, asking all my readers about their favourite themes for cross stitching. Now I know that you like to cross stitch flowers :), therefore today’s freebie is flower. (And yes, I love flowers too!) It is a pattern that can be used for a bookmark or as a motif.

The flower is adapted from one of the 19th century folk artworks of John van Minian.
