Cross Stitch on Crochet Free Horse Pattern

Cross Stitch on Crochet Projects



Well, if you are anything like me the Fall season is absolutely the best time to learn a new craft.  The children are back-to-school and the wind is starting up and I can't forget the rain my goodness we live on the west coast. Today I'm super excited to share my latest discovery which has been done many times but it's new to me...cross stitching on crochet! 

Our family loves the homey look of cross stitch and crochet

Getting started is easy if you know the basics, if not, here is a fantastic free tutorial link to get you started:

The horse pattern pictured above is by Paton's Beehive.  If you are interested in trying it out the pattern is below:



A quick search online gave me a few really good patterns I plan to try soon.



As you can see our daughters are crazy about horses. I chose the running horse pattern because it reminded me of the applique my daughters tee.


My youngest.


My oldest.

The backs of the projects will show with cross stitch so I thought it best to embellish pillows or pot holders.  My mind is racing with ideas for Christmas projects mainly UNICORNS! 


Good luck with your project and feel free to share it with us on our face book page here!
