Fairy Tales in Stitches: Red Riding Hood Babushka

This pattern is available through an Etsy seller, cupcakecutie1. It's a Red Riding Hood Babushka, of course, and I love the synergy of Russia with a more western European tale. Here's the seller's description:

My love of Little Red Riding Hood and russian dolls have combined in this cute cross stitch/embroidery pattern.

This listing is for the pattern only of the Red Riding Hood Babushka design shown and will be emailed to you as a pdf.

In the last photo you can see I have stitched the design using 14ct waste canvas on to a piece of heavy brown linen.

I love the raised effect and the contrast with the dark fabric.

This pattern is suitable for both cross stitch and tapestry/needlepoint as the pattern is based on a grid system with one square equalling one stitch.

You can stitch on any size aida/canvas that suits you. The design itself measures 100 stitches wide by 70 stitches high at its widest and highest points.

You will receive all the details you need to start stitching including a full colour chart, key, notes on fabric size and quantity of thread etc

I have included the DMC colours as a reference but of course you could easily change all the colours and any combination would look fabulous.

This is a great project to use up all those left over threads that we stitchers always seem to end up with!

Your pdf will be emailed to you within 24 hours of purchase, if not sooner. You will require Adobe reader to open the files which is available free from (reader).
