Think Pink for Breast Cancer

Think Pink Breast Cancer Care Black Cat cross stitch pattern, 2 cats inside a pink ribbon holding flowers.

Hi everyone, Think Pink for Breast Cancer, sorry this is a bit late, I forgot to upload this to the website!

October is the time to Think Pink for Breast Cancer so I thought I would design some patterns to stitch. One design with Mini Cats and the other featuring roses and a pink ribbon. Both easy to stitch for beginner or advanced stitchers.

I appreciate it maybe a bit late for this year but at least they can go in your stash for next years Think pink For Breast Cancer.

My first Think Pink Design is also available to download below.

Beginner stitching tips.

If you are a beginner stitcher you will need to cut your fabric to the following measurements to fit the design.

On 14 count Aida or 28 count Linen the Mini Cats design will be a finished size of 6 inches x 3 3/4 inches (15.2 cm) x (9.5 cm).

You will need to add at least 2 inches all around for finishing or framing. You will need to cut your fabric to the size of approximately 10 inches x 7 3/4 inches ( 25.4 cm x 20 cm )

I use 2 strands of DMC threads over 1 square of Aida fabric to make the crosses. For the backstitch on the heart ribbon you will need 1 strand of thread.
