The Homespun Kids issue arrived in my mail box this week and I have been eagerly waiting to share two new designs. Yes, you read right - this issue features two Cinderberry Stitches patterns.
I have been working on many 'secret' projects this year and finally I can show you a little more of what I have been stitching. Today it's all about the boys....
Once Upon a Time for boys is a stitched, appliqued and pieced design stretched over canvas that can be easily hung in the nursery or placed on a book self or small easel.
You will find Xavier in a little sailing boat among the waves...
with four yellow ducklings to guide the way, and the boat's bow is a perfect place to stitch your child's name and birth date. If you have followed my blog for a little while you would know I have given many of my 'Cinderberry folk' names of people from my Family.
Xavier is a sweetie (thanks Sez xo)
Even his scarf is blowing in the breeze, but I do love his stripe sweater sleeves & hat.
What I really enjoyed when working on this design was combining the blanket stitch applique with stitchery, I have always loved blanket stitching because it adds a little more texture to the finished piece even a bit more definition - of course you could still adapt the design for needle turn if you like.
The magazine should be in stores now so keep an eye out for the issue, it is packed full of great projects especially for kids and the little ones in our lives. Back to show the the little girl design very soon!
