CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
Colorful and whimsical as ever, Barbara Ana's Spring Cat is wearing a ballooning dress over a puffy white blouse with a high collar.
The black neckband and pendant, as well as the matching top hat give her a formal look.
Her arms are spread out, holding pots of flowers blooming into an arch above her head. Her crinoline-shaped skirt features a countryside scene with village houses and fences looking opening onto green fields. Dandelion seeds blow in the wind.
While the colorful and rich design can be stitched on any fabric of your choice, Barbara Ana decided to set it against a printed evenweave fabric by Fabric Flair with a "hand-dyed effect". This creates an interesting contrast between the cross stitch and the random visual effects of the backgound fabric.
