Recently I’ve been intrigued with the idea of using crochet as a canvas for cross stitch.
I pinned several other examples for inspiration, including this gorgeous baby beanie and jar covers:
I had planned to make more of my little crochet bunnies for the Paperdolls Handmade Spring Market and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to have a play with cross stitch on their little jumpers.
I used one of my mum’s old cross stitch pattern books to stitch a basic flower motif and I embroidered them before stuffing and joining together the bunnies so that I could hide all of the knots and untidiness inside (I’m not the neatest embroiderer!).
I really love how these bunnies turned out – they’re perfect for Spring!
I can’t wait to have a go at embroidering on another crochet project – maybe a clutch bag inspired by this iPad cover by Wolplein.nl.
