CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
Here is a new portrait by Barbara Ana of her favorite woodland animals. This cross stitch design features Lady squirrel looking sideways, displaying her best profile with big brown eyes and fluffy tail.
She is wearing a pretty aqua dress with a floral pattern, complete with black belt, white underpants and feet clad in black boots.
Surrounding her are two birds, some mushroom, a pumpkin and her favorite food, acorns.
The blue dress provides an interesting contrast with the natural colors. It is stitched in a nuanced thread color from the DMC Color Variations range (4025).
Creative Poppy tip:
To achieve the same linear pattern as the stitched model, when using nuanced threads we recommend you complete one stitch at a time, proceeding in rows. Alternatively if you wish to avoid the stripe effect, fill the area in diagonals or random patches.
