There’s always a birthday you forget and this super little Quick Stitch Flower Cross Stitch pattern is quick and easy to stitch and pop into the post.
It’s stitched on 16 count white Aida and uses just two shades of green, pink, orange and the little busy bees are in shades of black and yellow. So six colors in all and at just 20 x 20 stitches you could make this in an evening.
There are a few half stitches in the Quick Stitch Flower Cross Stitch pattern, but if you’re a less experienced stitcher just take it slowly and you’ll manage fine.
You could buy a small wooden hoop to turn the Quick Stitch Flower Cross Stitch pattern into a picture for your loved one to keep, or you could get an aperture card from your local hobby or craft shop and use double sided tape to mount it inside the three-fold card.
Alternatively, if you don’t have much time but still want a lovely finish, you could snip the design out as a square and then carefully remove some of the long threads to make an attractive frayed edge. Then just use a hobby glue suitable for material, or double sided tape to stick it onto the front of a colored card.
The design is small enough that you could also stick it onto stiff card and use it as a gift tag.
