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!
