Free fecking cross stitch pattern

26 Mar 15

In May it’s my friend Marie’s birthday, her 30th in fact, so as well as bought gifts I wanted to make her a little something too.

We used to spend a lot of time hanging out watching TV, and one of our favourite shows is Father Ted, so I decided to make something Father-Ted themed.

There aren’t many patterns available as it turns out, so I found a few free cross stitch font patterns on Pinterest and created my own pattern (feel free to use it, it’s at the bottom of this post!).



I stitched it using a blue thread onto some aida, and put it in a hoop so it can be hung on the wall.

It’s a relatively simple little project, but it’s nice to give something handmade and a little more personal!

I see a lot of Dala horses in my craft magazines at the moment, they’re everywhere, so whilst watching TV one┬ánight I was playing around in illustrator and drew these little guys up.

Your Internet is Crap

Just a little bit of hand lettering, inspired by the old Buzz Radar office which had no phone signal and terrible internet that would drop out every 5 minutes… thank fully they moved!
