A finished SG-50 project!

SG50 stitched by Craftty Craken

This post is doubly amazing, as it is a) a photo of my pattern coming to life and b) a reminder about my wonderful Singapore vacation. Or rather all of my Singapore vacations, as it is one of the cities that I love to come back to.

Please note, that this pattern is a little bit (two stitches) wider than most of the runic patterns of the same design. I had to make it like this because the rune’s neame is longer 🙂

The symbolic tree for Berkana on the pattern is pomegranate.

Wasted (GTA inspired) cross stitch pattern

Wasted (GTA inspired) cross stitch pattern

Hello dear readers, and sorry for being away for several days. September began swiftly and brought lots of different projects into my life, including a stitchy square for Stitching out Stigma, an ornament for Christmas ornament exchange, a job offer, and an unexpected journey (yup, I feel almost like a Hobbit. Legs, too :)). On top of that me and my husband are trying to sell the current apartament and buy a new one. But I am still here, and so are the usual freebies. If there are any GTA fans out there, they will definitely like it!

Wasted (GTA inspired) mini cross stitch pattern

A simple mini project, that can be stitched in a night with only three colors (two, if you skip the background). And what a powerful message! 🙂 Any GTA video game fan knows that line.

Chibi ladybird girl pattern

Chibi ladybird cross stitch 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

Eat Fruit Be Healthy free cross stitch poster

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.
