Happiness is cross stitching blog

Freebie Friday – Parasol pattern

Hi everyone, its Freebie Friday!
Here is another free pattern from my new designs

that I am putting together called The Edwardian Lady Collection.  I am currently making a box with a needlebook, a scissor fob, a pincushion,a toblerone and this pinkeep, essentially this is a sneak preview of that collection. It is based on one free cross stitch pattern that I downloaded from the internet of an Edwardian Lady in a fine hat, the lady is stitched one thread over one thread of 32 count fabric, I then decided to make lots of small items to compliment the design. 
I am also hoping to make some matching  gift tags in Photoshop Elements to compliment the set.

This pinkeep is stitched on 32count fabric, you can see my tutorial here showing how to make a pinkeep, not this one above but it is the same idea just different  measurements.
This pattern is a real quick stitch, it would make an ideal last minute gift  for someone, particularly a 
Downton Abbey fan!

Edited – You can now see Part Two of this set on this post here

Just right click the image below and click “save as” to your computer then print it and you are ready to go!
Until next time – Happy Stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
