Hi everyone, Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year, I had a lovely time over the holidays, I was doing quite a bit of mini cat pattern designing and stitching, I have posted a mini cat pillow tutorial on my tutorials blog here
I printed out the matching tags but they turned out pink instead of bright red as I was running out of ink on my computer, but at least you get the idea!
I popped it into a cellophane bag, it looked ever so pretty.
All wrapped up and given as a gift
In 2015 I will be designing a new mini cat pattern for every month of the year, they will continue to be freebies on my blog but if you prefer a pdf document that includes a colour and black and white grid, list of thread colours and beginner cross stitch instructions then you can purchase them from my Craftsy store below……
If you are not a member of the Craftsy site you can sign up at this affiliate link
Here are the first two freebies for January and February, the next one for March will be available on the first Friday in February to enable you to get it stitched in time for March, all other patterns will be available on the first Friday of every month, i.e. Aprils month will be available on the first Friday in March etc…
You could either stitch them as individual ornaments, pillows, box lids etc or you could stitch them all on one piece of linen or aida and frame it.
I would love to see your finished designs!
The first design is this cute knitting cat, I am sure your knitting friends would love this!
Just right click and save to your computer.
and for Valentines Day another new design, this is also available in a larger format, see below.
Larger design available from my Etsy store here
or my Craftsy Store here
Show and tell!
I would love to see any finished photos of your mini cat stitching, if you send me the photos I will post them on my blog and link them to your blog page.
Last year I received a selection of photographs from a lady who stitched my mini cats for each month of the year, in fact it was this lady who inspired me to design these monthly designs for mini cat, if you are reading this please contact me again, I have lost your email with the photos and would love to post them on my blog and show my readers.
I received these lovely photographs from a blogging friend, Ana had stitched my mini cat onto wine bottle covers, how cute!
Thanks Ana for sending me your finished mini cat stitching.
Until next time…….happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
