Easter bunny and rooster cross stitch patterns

Cross Stitch Motif for Towels, Children's Items and Linens etc...



      Birds and rabbits are much used for cross stitch motifs on children's clothing and linens. The work may be done by laying a piece of canvas over the linen and counting the stitches of the design on the squares of canvas, then when the design is filled in with cross stitch, the canvas is pulled out, thread by thread. An easier way is to transfer the pattern to your linen with impression paper. All the stitches which run in one direction should be worked first and then crossed by those which run in the opposite direction. A good cotton to use is the long skein mercerized cotton, which is twisted very tightly.

Learn the basics of cross stitching.
