Continuing with my leaf series, I’ve got a new plant-inspired cross stitch pattern for you this month!
Every month, I’m sharing new cross stitch patterns created by me. May 1st patterns always hold a special significance because it’s also my birthday, so I like to save a good one for ya! I love this one in particular, inspired by one of my current obsessions: houseplants (and the shelves they sit on).
This time, I’ve got a little bit more of a complex pattern for you by adding backstitches for the cactus needles/spines. There aren’t too many of them and the pattern is still great if you don’t feel like doing them, but I think they add something special, so I couldn’t avoid including them. It’s also on the larger side if you use 14 Aida fabric, but if you need it to fit into a smaller hoop, you can always choose to work on 16 or 18 count fabric instead (same image, but just a smaller overall pattern). Grab your pattern using the button below to get to the pattern library!
