Well, I’ve been stitching again. This time I’ve made a Unicorn Counted Cross Stitch Pattern. And, I think I might be totally in love with it. What’s better than a unicorn? A cross stitched unicorn, that’s what!
Before I dive into the project and share the free pattern I just wanted say a word about the wonderful ladies that inspired this project–my sweet unicorn sisters, fellow bloggers that offer me daily support, laughs, advice and community. All of the ladies also contributing pinterest inspired projects to this post are my wonderful unicorn sisters, along with a few other wonderful ladies. I love them and I certainly wouldn’t be blogging still without them. So ladies, you know who you are, and this project is for you!
Oh, really this project is for any unicorn loving stitcher out there. Here’s the free pattern. Take it, use it and let the unicorn fun begin! As with all of my cross stitch patterns each square fully filled in is a cross stitch. Feel free to add some personalization (here is a free font) if you’d like.
As you can see, the pattern is very basic and is set up for only one color. I stitched mine up with a ombre effect to show you all the possibilities with this pattern. Don’t ya just love possibilities?
And, the more thread you have, the more possibilities. I have all the colors DMC has to offer. Seriously. I have a problem.
For my ombre unicorn I just stitched a few lines with one color and then moved onto a new color. I kept track of my progress like this:
And then, here is the finished product in all it’s magical glory! I love it.
