Fleur et Papillon
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Peacock & Fig
Simple, elegant, with a modern, contemporary touch, this poppy is interpreted in cross stitch as if it had been painted in watercolor and outlined with a black pen. The light cross stitch reds, varying from pink to orange, seem to bleed into each other while the sharp black lines of the backstitch add just what is needed of extra definition. A little blue butterfly flies in the distance.
The stitched piece is mounted into a pin cushion. Finishing instructions are included with the chart.
Creative Poppy Tip: stitch the pattern twice and create a matching Needlebook so you have a set of needlework accessories. Makes a great gift for a friend.
This pattern is part of the Adorned Life Collection, a series of cross stitch everyday items to make from scratch, designed by Peacock & Fig.
