Our Flamingo cross stitch pattern is a real wow for anyone who loves stitching birds and animals. It’s part of our animal collection.
Created by our young designer who loves wildlife, the Flamingo cross stitch pattern uses 18 DMC colors ranging from pink through brown and blue to create gorgeous shades and a stunning effect.
We’ve used 16 count white Aida for the Flamingo cross stitch pattern, but if you wanted a slightly different effect you could use a sparkly blue Aida which will mimic the sky in the background.
This is one of our medium sized designs, measuring 85 x 90 stitches but it should be straightforward for a medium ability stitcher to make because there are some quite large sections of color as well as smaller ones to create shading.
The outlining is done in a single thread of black DMC and it brings the design to life and makes the colors pop.
As with all our designs, you order the Flamingo cross stitch pattern online and then download it straight from the internet. There are two charts. The first is a color chart showing you which color goes where, and then the second one has black and white symbols so that there is no chance of you making a mistake.
Our Flamingo cross stitch makes a fabulous gift
We think our Flamingo cross stitch would make a fabulous gift for someone who loves nature and conservation and would be marvellous if you had it professionally framed with non-reflective glass. However it would look just as good if you decided not to cover it with glass but to put it into a box frame.
