Once upon a time (English version of C'era una volta)
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Lilli Violette
A little girl in a red dress is seated, a book on her knees, and is reading a story aloud. All her animal friends are listening, facing her with attention, completely absorbed by her story.
This cross stitch embroidery captures many of the pleasures of childhood, in particular the joy of reading. The chart, originally created in Italian, was translated into English with the text "Once upon a time". See below on the bottom right.
Finishing idea: You could finish this stitched piece into a bag for a toddler to carry their books around.
