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.

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.

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.

The name says it all: here is a new freebie, and it is heavily inspired by beautiful work of William Morris. I have seen some of his amazing gobelins when a large Pre-Rafaelite collection was exhibited in Pushkin art museum in Moscow. The whole exhibition was an overwhelming experience!

Usually I post cross stitch freebies on Tuesdays, but yesterday was somewhat intense – and because of that I made a freebie today (and that is so not OCD, I’m really impressed by myself). Anyway, today I turned into a pattern this public domain image (sending my regards to the unknown author!) with beautiful Hibiscus flowers. It came out very light and easy, with less than ten colors of floss used.
