For this month’s pattern, I chose a cute little kingfisher with brightly colored feathers and background. Simple, but fun to stitch!
Every month, I’m sharing new cross stitch patterns created by me. This year I seem to have a thing for birds, because this is my second one! But when I came across a few images of the brightly colored kingfisher, it just seemed like a great cross stitch pattern in the making (with a little color block creative licensing, of course). Perhaps when I make a few more avian-related patterns, I’ll create a bundled set called “For the Birds” 😉
I decided to keep this one simple, with limited colors instead of trying to go for a more photorealistic image. If you’d like to see more complex patterns that look more like the real deal though, let me know!
