Happy Easter Cross Stitch Pattern (Free)

Hi Everyone!

As you know I have learning to cross stitch recently and wanted to give making patterns a try. I found this website called Stitch Fiddle that allows you to create your own patterns and share them with others. It is mostly free, but if you want to have a little more options you can pay a small yearly fee for it. You can also create crochet and knitting patterns on it so I thought it was a great idea! For my second pattern I made an Easter themed cross stitch pattern. It is pretty simple since I am just starting out, but I think it is a nice springy little pattern for beginners. You can find the pattern here.

Here is the completed pattern framed:

I added the hearts, eggs, and flowers to add some spring touches and used pale colours to soften the piece. This was my first framed cross stitch pattern so feel free to give me any pointers and enjoy stitching away.

Happy Easter and thank you for stopping by my blog!

Crochet Bunny Hat and Diaper Cover Free Pattern

Hi Everyone!

It is almost the long weekend and time for Easter! I received some free fuzzy pink yarn recently and was wondering what I could make with it. Then I thought since it is almost Easter, I would make a bunny rabbit baby set with a hat and diaper cover. I thought it would be difficult to crochet with this yarn, but if you don’t have to undo it, it crochets like any other yarn. This is my first time designing a diaper cover pattern so there were some sections that I had to redo and adjust. I also adjusted the baby hat pattern for the bunny hat and made some ears to add on top.
