Our Flower and Butterfly Mother’s Day cross stitch is a lovely gift to make, not just for your mother but perhaps for another special lady in your life, like a friend or a relative who means a lot to you.
Created in shades of purple and green, with a cute little butterfly in grey, red and blue, and a sunny centre in bright yellow, our Flower and Butterfly Mother’s Day cross stitch is made on 16 count Aida, using DMC thread, which we think is the best quality.
We’ve made it on white Aida but you could choose cream, navy blue, red or green and you could use other colors too. The design is outlined in a single thread of black DMC but you could use a darker purple to outline the flower and a dark green on the leaves for added interest.
To make it really special you could use a Gutermann sparkly holographic thread for outlining for a touch of luxury.
This design is relatively easy to make too, because it contains quite large blocks of the same color. When you order this Flower and Butterfly Mother’s Day cross stitch you’ll receive a file to download on your computer. You can then use it straight from your computer or you can print it out to use another time.
The details we send you include a color chart so that you can see which colors go where, and a black and white chart showing the symbols so that it’s easy to follow.
