Inspired by a close family friend’s love for peacocks, I created this peacock head cross stitch pattern that would work well as a colorful feature piece!
Every month, I’m sharing new cross stitch patterns created by me. Animals have been a fun series to create — especially birds — so I made this peacock head version! For some added color, I put a small oval background in yellow, but you can ABSOLUTELY change this color to match your decor or not use any background at all (it’s all the same color, so that should be easy to change or avoid if you choose).
K’s mom’s maiden name is Peacock, which is where I got the inspiration (she likes peacocks). She won’t know this until I’m finished, but I’ll be making this one for her to give her later this year (after stay-at-home orders are over, or perhaps I’ll mail it to her if I finish things early). I hope you enjoy!
Since so many of use are spending more time at home lately, I’m working HARD on some roundups of projects you can tackle and a solid cross stitch tutorial for those of you who are new and want to start with the basics. It’s taking me a little while to create some good diagrams but I’ll be publishing that this month, along with TONS of new projects!
