Happy Childhood: Old fashioned games
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Perrette Samouiloff


 

Cross stitch designer Perrette Samouiloff recalls the games of yesteryear, when no screen or plastic toy was in sight. Children still played a lot, mind you, as this beautiful pattern shows, deeply focused on activities requiring a lot of skill and balance. Featured in the patterns are a dozen different games including walking on stilts, skipping with a rope, playing with skittles, diabolo, yoyo, bilboquet, juggling balls, badmington, rocking on a see-saw, riding a bicycle, or balancing on a board.

 

The pattern can be stitched as a whole, or individual motifs or rows of motifs can be used for stitching on various items. You can use the pattern for making lovely gifts for children, say a skipping rope, with a personalized bag with corresponding motif. 

 

Another idea is to use waste canvas to stitch on regular textile items (tshirts, sweatshirts, etc.), where after basting the waste-canvas on the regular fabric, you use the canvas to guide your cross stitches, then pull away the canvas threads, leaving only your stitches on the regular item.

Different color backgrounds can be used as fabric, including white, off white or ecru, but the pattern can also be stitched on navy or any bright color that offers sufficient contrast with the thread colors used.
